Bones of possible vanished mobster found near stadium

8/5/2003

CHICAGO -- The FBI in Chicago on Tuesday said they have found
possible human remains after a dig near the stadium of the
Chicago White Sox.

Special Agent Thomas Kneir says the remains found at the edge of
a parking lot near U.S. Cellular Field will be tested to determine
if they are human.

If so, then experts will try to identify them through DNA.

Kneir says the bones uncovered by the dig could be those of
Michael Frank "Bones" Albergo. The 43-year-old Albergo was known
as a collector for an organized-crime, loan-sharking operation. He
vanished in 1970.

Kneir says the bureau's suspicions that Albergo may have been
buried there are based on an informant's tip. A warehouse used to
be at the site.

Besides bones, a human tooth and the spine of an unidentified
animal were found.
