Hartmut “Hans the Surgeon” Graewe, one of Cleveland’s most notorious Mafia hitmen, died behind bars on October 27, Cleveland.com reported last week. Graewe was 78. Before passing away in a federal prison in Texas, he was feared on the streets of Ohio. He was nicknamed “The Surgeon” because of his fondness for dismembering the bodies of his mob victims.
