In the borough of Saint-Leonard in Montreal the ongoing mafia war has claimed yet another victim.
Vincenzo Scuderi was shot to death in front of his home on Thursday night by unknown gunmen. Scuderi has known links to the mafia including Giuseppe De Vito , Nicola Di Marco , and Raynald Desjardins. Many believe this murder is another strike back from godfather Vito Rizzuto as he positions himself to reclaims his role as boss of the Montreal Mafia. Rizzuto and his Sicilian faction are believed to be behind this and other recent murders in Montreal as they look to take back control.

Authorities say that the latest murders have been targeted at two mob clans with links to Raynald Desjardins and Giuseppe De Vito since the November murder of Joe Di Maulo. There have been six murders linked to the ongoing Montreal mafia war already this year according to authorities compared to only two at this time last year. Many believed that the return of Vito Rizzuto to Montreal after being released from a U.S. prison would lead to more violence and it has. There is no real end in sight and until someone regains control of things the Montreal underworld remains unstable.
