Marlo ordered one man murdered simply for "talking back". This man was a security guard at a convenient store that Marlo pilfered two dum-dums from. All the security guard asked for was a little respect. By the end of the fourth season, the cops have found 22 bodies in vacant houses, and who knows how many other bodies there might be.
- Many events and characters on the show are based on real events, including the use of abandoned houses as a place to stash bodies, and the eventual discovery of a large number of them. Imagine how many people walked past those houses for who knows how long without knowing about it... and imagine how many did know and said nothing for months due to being afraid of winding up like that themselves.
