On this day ……… 28th of May 1999

Joseph Quadara, a 57-year-old greengrocer, was ambushed by two people and killed in a Toorak carpark in the early hours on this day in 1999, as he was about to start work at a Safeway supermarket. The former millionaire was declared bankrupt in 1994. Police believed that his killing was a case of mistaken identity, due to the existence of another Giuseppe “Joe” Quadara involved in Melbourne’s fruit and vegetable industry with underworld connections, although Joe himself had connections to the Melbourne’s fruit and vegetable markets and it is conspired that the Markets God-Father; Frank Benevenuto hired Andrew “Benji” Veniamin to perform the hit.

ON THIS DAY …….18th August 2003

Mark Mallia would die a painful death in a garage at a property in Lalor at the hands of a number of well known gangland figures including Benji Veniamin.  It was alleged that Carl Williams ordered that Mallia be interrogated and tortured as he believed that Mallia had hidden drug money from him.  Mallia would be tortured with a soldering iron at the hands of 5 men before being strangled.  His body would be found later the same day, badly burned in a melted wheelie bin about 8pm that night in a stormwater drain near a soccer club in West Sunshine.  The autopsy showed Mallia had died of neck compression.
