The following are notes taken by Freelance Buzz Writer, Merlot, at the bedside of Pietro Grazia, while he was talking irrationally, in a semi-conscious condition.
“Please leave me alone Chiatti, I was never a bad guy in my life, I’m not a rat," he murmured.
“(Bruno) Ferilli, fuck him the dirty rat, I’ll get him – I always thought you were a rat but I did not think you would do this.”
The following are notes taken after speaking to Captain Morrison, who interrogated Grazia’s wife, Rosa.
Mrs. Rosa Grazia, of 37 88th Street, Buffalo, NY, appeared at the Office of Captain Morrison, of Rochester Police Dept, and was interrogated by him.
