MONTREAL - Montreal police said the man they found dead in a car Saturday afternoon had ties to the city's Italian mafia.

City police discovered the body of Emilio Cordileone, 50, around 9:30 a.m. in a northern suburb.

Police said the car in which they found the victim was connected to the recent disappearance of an unidentified person. Sources told QMI Agency that the missing person was Cordileone.

Police would not confirm the identity of the victim nor would they say if it is the same person who had recently gone missing.

They would only say that the victim had wounds to the upper body and added that it was clear the victim was dead when he was discovered.

While Cordileone was known to police as having ties with the city's Italian organized crime syndicates, he did not have a criminal record.
