  • Make sure to leave your questions for our Post Mortem episode down below!

    • BuzzFeed Unsolved Network make an episode of the Mackenzie Poltergeist..! Guarantee Shane will believe then! Lol seriously... messed up case though lol

    • Is Shane really from Chicago or from the suburbs 🤔

    • Why do you guys always add “wheeze”? I love it though 😂

    • Is Shane a Demon mob boss? #postmortem #boogara

  • Feed Moe to the flamingos LOL

  • I can solve this murder. Eddie killed Benjamin with Roberts rifle and he fled towards Roberts house towards that golf course to return the weapon and that’s why he matches the gun he committed suicide with. Easy solve come on guys.

  • 1:25 Fat Tony the simpsons

  • Actually loooove the illustrations in this one!


  • You guys should do the unsolved mystery of what really happened to hitler. It has been proven that his body was not ever found and many people think he fled to South America.

  • @ 1:20 Scar Face

  • I dont know anything about shooting, but is 4/9 shots considered expert?


  • What about his italian girlfriend who told him not to kill those italian officials at a nazi party or something

  • *Ricky has entered the chat*

  • Damn, Ryan's had some FIRE one-liners this season!!

  • Missed opportunity to call him the cali Capone

  • what in the goddamn

  • I feel like maybe the mob has this thing where if you're dying, just confess to a bunch of murders to throw off investigators.. so many deathbed confessions outchea

  • you know i had to do it to em

  • Shane: As someone who was born under the Bean Shane: is from Schaumburg

  • I had a dream that it was this episode but when Ryan said “unsolved” he said “bugssolved” and I woke myself up laughing...... (get it bugsy)

  • Justin seagull 💜

  • What is it with "February" and this channel 😂

  • Is Jack Dragna just a photo of Rodney Dangerfield?

  • There is a living person that has some facial similarities with Bugsy Seigel. #BuzzFeedUnsolved

  • When they said 30 caliber carbine they shortened m1 garand, they should have shown an m1 carbine. By the way the only reason I'm watching this video is cuz it showed up in my recommended. My sister has been using my account to watch RU-tv a lot

    • BTW the gun, you showed an m1 garand, is a 30-06 rifle. Not a 30 caliber rifle, there's a difference

  • really like the flamingo cup.

  • Hold up a minute. Shane, fellow Chicagoan? I had no idea!

  • shane. buddy. chicago pizza is actual trash


  • Ricky Goldsworth At it again

  • Do a buzz feed unsolved for cicada 3301

  • Holy mother of a cow.... my uncle is called Robert and our family name is MacDonald.... we’re Australian though so....

  • 1:53 eXcUse me LUcKy WHO???

  • What happened on 6:25 what is the a glitch

  • febiuwary !

  • I'd let Ryan choke me with his arms.

  • out of all the people id expect to have a consensual non-monogamous relationship, a mobster and his wife was not one of them.

  • *Fallout new vegas intensifies*

  • I love that Ryan's cup is covered with flamingos

  • 5:44 is that you Ricky? Damn... Ricky just went straight to the point 😂

  • Chicago Mod sounds like a TV show like Chicago PD

  • "expert marksman" *Hits 4 out of 9 shots*

  • ...I just wanna watch Bugsy Malone now.

  • convo i had w my mom when this came out: me: ooo its on bugsy siegel mom: cool i think thats the gangster that my grandmother waited on when she was a waitress on a gambling boat off of the coast of LA me: excuse me like i didn't even know how to respond lmao

  • Hate to break it to y’all but all of LA is still corrupt

  • I don’t get how the 30 cats story and his quest to develop a birth control serum ties in with the theory

  • Damn yanks can’t pronounce “pergola”

  • Do Marilyn Monroe!!

  • "Bee and Moose" A show about nature.

  • talk about las muertes de Juarez

  • The Eddie bit omg

  • The flamingo mug is a nice sneaky deco touch :D

  • Shane's expression each time Ryan uses him as an example for a murder victim is amazing

  • shane’s just asking to be shot up by the mob “ *put them behind bars* “ let’s pray for shane y’all

  • Lovin Ryan's on-theme flamingo cup this episode, well done

  • DUDE, if *Mac Miller* was still alive he could have totally played buggsy because they look so alike... also rest in peace... probs should have put that at the begining

  • The devil works hard But Ryan practicing how to February works harder

  • Hello to the ghoul boys, I live in a small town south of Chicago (not telling you which one) and we have a very old court house that is supposedly haunted. There has been a ton of murders and suicides. Do you think you would ever want to check it out? I would love if you ever decided to. Keep being beautiful ghoul boys. With much hauntings,Gracie

  • What if the speeding car was a random civilian that was scared by the gunshots

  • Hey guys do you know where my dog went?

  • You should make an episode talking about the 2014 Iguala mass kidnapping in Mexico

  • Nobody: Shane and Ryan: “wE LiVe In LoS aNgElEs

  • Did Ryan purposely have a flamingo mug for the flamingo hotel?

  • All hail the watcher!

  • Dude reminds me of Joe Pesci's character Nicky Santoro in the movie Casino.

  • @7:01 I thought the video buffered

  • Does anyone know why the show the faces in some episodes and then dont in others?

  • 3:48 look at Ryan, he's so done with Shane's lame puns😂😂

  • *Looks a little Sylvester Stallone*

  • I wanna own a casino like bugsy Siegel and do it all legal

  • The witness that claimed that a speeding car drove towards Sunset Blvd was the real killer. Case closed.

  • 5:18 so that’s where “no mourners, no funerals” comes from

    • Bengal Panthera you’ve read Six Of Crows?

  • I think the cats were a BIPRODUCT of the research. How else do you test the birth control?

  • My mom: *keeps talking* Me: 9:17

  • Scar face is a mobster nickname

  • Lucky Luciano really had to do it to em

  • For the post mortem: You guys seem to get along so well...but, have you ever just had a bro meltdown? I mean, Ryan talks about killing Shane in like every episode lol

  • I was born on February 28th omg omg omg omg

  • Don't steal from your cholera and associates if u our a mobster.

  • This kinda reminds me of the game Mafia 3

  • Should've used a picture of Shane dressed as Clark Gable from that one try guys video, just saying

  • "Moose mobile." 😂😂😂

  • Murders need to confess on their death beds give the family some closure. The car racing away could have been a civilian fleeing

  • Kinda looks like rocky

  • Hard to trust anything from BuzzFeed.

  • 1:56 he did it to em??????

  • Mentions M1 Carbine, shows picture of M1 Garand

  • Frankie Carbone Lansky's guy he more than likely did it

  • My brother calls me tiny

  • When I think of a nickname that you didn’t want to say to his face it has to be Greg the grim reaper skarpa

  • CHICAGO #1

  • I love how Ryan is like "California's too nice, we don't have any crime" ... literally all the serial killers are in Cali lmao

  • "leading lucky luciano to take the throne as the chairman of the board of the american mafia" ...he really did it to 'em...

  • Lol, when the mob hit you, they usually used someone close to you. Could be your best friend or a family member. Serve's 2 purposes. 1 makes it easier to do the hit, you never see it coming. 2. Proves the loyalty of the shooter to the mob. 3. The mafia doesn't exist, stop looking into this. . . .if you know what's good for you.

  • #FeedHimToTheFlamingoes #YAS #PerfectCrime

  • What if it was the iceman? He sure knows how to hit someone without getting caught and he did kill a lot of mobsters.

  • yeah he birthed las vegas in the same way christopher columbus birthed america

  • Love y'all

  • "Ho ho nobody knew that the killer was I, The Watcher!"

  • Ricky really pulled thru during this episode

  • Moe and Bee sound like they had a really healthy relationship tbh
