Suspected mobster Rudolph Izzi, 74, was found shot to death in his Brooklyn apartment at 2:30 yesterday afternoon, according to the International Herald Tribune. The apartment door looked to have been kicked in.
Izzi was reportedly beaten in his home by an unidentified man in 2001. At that time, Izzi was identified as a reputed soldier in the Genovese Crime Family.
