THROAT CUT

IN A PREDOMINENTLY ITALIAN NEIGHBORHOOD THERE IS A
HOUSE WHERE NOONE WILL LIVE. WHEN THE MAFIA WAS VERY
ACTIVE IN THIS PARTICULAR NEIGHBORHOOD, THERE WAS A
MURDER. A MAN WENT OUT TO HIS OUTSIDE TOILET AND
WAS FOUND THERE WITH HIS THROAT CUT.
EVER SINCE THEN, PEOPLE WHO MOVED INTO THE HOUSE
