    No crime out here in God's country except the once in a while drunk and disorderly (farmers like to drink and fight) Everyone has guns and everyone knows it. You screw around out here, there are miles and miles of corn and bean fields to get planted in. Happens all the time but usually from Detroit or Flint or Jackson. They plant their victims out here and a farmer finds the remains.

    "Residents of small towns in New England like to say "George Washington slept here," while citizens of the Illinois Valley like to say "Al Capone slept here." As you can see, things are different in the Land of Lincoln. Scarface might or might not have laid his head to rest in the Illinois Valley - a region 70 miles southwest of Chicago - but there is evidence that lesser hoods slept there - sometimes for eternity. Capone's Cornfields covers the rackets and racketeers of the Illinois Valley from the horse-and-buggy era to the Internet age. You'll read about bona fide pinstripe-clad Mafiosi such as Capone, Paul "The Waiter" Ricca and "Mad" Sam De Stefano. However, lesser known and less noxious viceroys of vice also appear in its pages. In Capone's Cornfields, you'll be taken for a ride, but unlike some of the mobsters about which you'll read, you'll return safely."

    It's an interesting read.

    The swamplands of NW Indiana are a favorite place to dispose of "problems".
