Ippoli­to Greco of 230 E107th, the owner of the ‘Mur­der Sta­ble’ was killed on Octo­ber 7th1915.

Greco, a saloon keep­er with Ange­lo Gagliano at 227 E107th, had been involved in the killing of Bar­net Baff. He received a mes­sage at the sta­bles one night to meet some friends at a saloon on E108th Street. As Greco left the sta­ble with four men, includ­ing his broth­er Vin­cen­zo, he was shot and killed.

The four men were arrest­ed as wit­ness­es, Gio­van­ni Vis­er­ti, Nico­la Vit­ra­no, Fran­cis­co Inge­ma­to and Vin­cen­zo Greco. The men told con­flict­ing sto­ries, and Vin­cen­zo Greco claimed to have fired his gun into the air to scare the killers, four cham­bers of his gun were found to be dis­charged. He was held on $300 bail as a mate­r­i­al wit­ness to the coroner.
