Nobody talks about the mysterious mob murders anymore.
It's an event lost to history's fading memory - almost as if it never happened.
But there was a time, 72 years ago, when big-city crime paid a visit to the quiet, little village of Hometown.
It was a day of mob warfare, bullets, gun smoke, blood and cries. The tragedy shocked the picturesque mountaintop community just three miles north of Tamaqua, and made headlines across the land.
