The Sopranos redux
Sometimes reality can be stranger than fiction.
Coquitlam RCMP and a local newspaper say they have been contacted by an anonymous tipster who claims he has the bullet-riddled body of an escaped gangster stored in his fridge.
AN anonymous caller told the North Shore News on Friday that he is holding Omid Tahvili's bullet-riddled body until RCMP offer him a suitable reward.
In an early afternoon phone call, the heavily accented man claimed that the escaped gangster was killed about five days ago, after being shot five times in the head, chest, arm, and legs.
He said he is storing the body in his fridge.
He would not reveal how he came to be in possession of the corpse, or any information about who shot Tahvili.
The convicted North Vancouver crime boss has been missing since he escaped from North Fraser Pretrial Centre in November.
