GARY, Ind., Feb. 22 (A2) – Every hour he was away from home, Paul Perconti, head of the Unione Siciliano of Gary, would telephone his wife so she might know he was safe.
Perconti hasn’t telephoned since 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. He told his wife he would be home within half an hour for supper. He never arrived. Today police dragged creeks and searched the woodlands for his body.
On the “old Johnson Farm,” 15 miles east of Gary, the sheriff of Porters county found Perconti’s cap, stained with blood, and Perconti’s automatic pistol and holster, also blood stained. Mrs. Perconti identified them. The farm, long abandoned, is the same on which a large still was found last fall. It has long been spoken of by officers as a bootlegger’s hangout.
