Phony Biblical Relics

Investigative reporter Nina Burleigh talked about the James Ossuary and other contentious archaeological 'finds' from the Holy Land. Many of the archaeological digs in Israel are being financed and carried out by Fundamentalist Christians, Burleigh said. The person who crafted the James Ossuary played into their desire to find ancient objects that could confirm the validity of Scripture, she noted.Burleigh traced the path of the Ossuary from an anonymous collector to renowned Semitic epigrapher Andre Lemair to Hershel Shanks of Biblical Archaeology Review, who to this day defends the authenticity of artifact. According to Burleigh, the James Ossuary is partly authentic -- it is an ancient bone box. However, scholars performed chemical analyses on the box and found modern materials stuck into the carved phrase "brother of Jesus," confirming the inscription was new. Further investigation revealed the anonymous collector had a workshop where such artifacts could be produced. ... More »

Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso

Ian spoke with crime expert Philip Carlo, who shared stories from his research into organized crime and discussed his latest work, Gaspipe: Confessions of a Mafia Boss.Carlo said he grew up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, where he was a neighbor of Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso, the man who led the Lucchese crime family and is serving thirteen consecutive life sentences plus 455 years at a federal prison in Colorado. According to Carlo, Casso is very angry about his current situation, and at least partially blames it on Vincent "The Chin" Gigante's refusal to kill an FBI informant in his crew.Carlo discussed the 1991 Windows Case, which involved the manipulation of who received the contract to install hundreds of thousands of windows in city-owned buildings in New York. This case led to the arrest of the heads of all five crime families, Carlo explained, noting this as the reason Casso initially went on the lam. Carlo also provided details about Casso's association with Louis Eppol ... More »
