More recently, the FBI found a body on the grounds of the mansion – the victim of a murder. In 2009, Joseph Young, the mansion’s caretaker — and Bonanno crime family associate — was convicted of murder for luring Robert McKelvey to the deserted grounds in April 2005. Young stabbed, strangled and drowned McKelvey before cutting up the body and tossing the remains into the furnace. The ashes were hidden in the septic tank but were later recovered by the FBI. McKelvey, a mobster himself, had been killed for offending local Bonanno crew chief Gino Galestro. The FBI looked for additional bodies but found none.
