The murder of Butch Cap

One of the strangest events ever in Hudson County (where the strange is common-place) was the murder of the nephew of an influential political figure. In the mid-seventies, the nephew became partners with Tommy – a dealer in rare powders who was then operating out of a North Bergen cliff-side location. The nephew attempted to sweeten his profit margin by adding sugar to the product. One customer – a notorious local Organized Crime figure – didn’t have a sweet tooth. Without hesitation the nephew was abducted and murdered.

A few years later, the father of the Organized Crime figure tried to spring his son from a New Jersey State prison. The plan was to bribe a guard to put the prisoner in the trunk of his father’s car. The guard reported the plot and the father, too, was arrested.
