SAN FRANCISCO, April 7.— Positive
identification was given the dismem
bered remains found Wednesday night
at Vallejo and Powell streets and yes
terday afternoon oft Meiggs* wharf
when Peter Antonio Crespano Concello
called at the morgue tonight and de
clared . the mutilated body . to be that
Ms • half- brother;:; Rtagglo Vilardo,
an Italian laborer. Concello tells a
mysterious story of the disappearance
of his . brother, whom he saw for the
last time three weeks ngo. He also
gives Information. which the police be
lieve will lead to the speedy apprehen
sion of the murderer.
The first information that led to the
identity of the murdered man was
given to Captain of Detectives Burnett
by a member of the curious throng that
crowded about the morgue. Tbn
stranger said he believed a brother of
the deceased was employed as an oiler
at Sixteenth nnd Harrison streets.
With' this information as a clew,' D
etectives Harrison and Graham soon lo
cated Concello and took him with v
friend named Glacomo Llcursi to the
morgue. The moment the men rested
their eyes on the face of the deceased
they at once identified him.
The detectives found that Vilardo,
who was a native of Palermo, Sicily,
and 28 years tit age, had been living
In a roonr at 710 Montgomery avenue.
The apartment was found to be desert
ed and the few things found there did
not furnish the ' slightest clew. ■ An
effort is now being made to find the
last lodging place of the murdered
man, for it is there that the detectives
believe the crime was committed.
In telling the story of the events pre
ceding his brother's death, Concellc
"It has been three weeks since I last
saw my brother. I missed him from
his customary lodging place and learned
that he had moved and was working
as a day laborer in Oakland.
"Just after the murder of Ouiseppl
Brogardo on January 21, a cousin of
the dead man, named Fertitta Bene

and made the requeM. that I furnish
some money to assist in defraying the
funeral expenses of the murdered
man. I refused to 'do so and they
went away. I also received a letter
from Benedlcto making a request for
money but I never compiled with It.
