Did They Rob Their 3-Way Lover For Drugs And End Up Burying Him in the Basement?

When police arrested Jeffrey Mundt and Joseph Banis in Chicago for tipping a hotel doorman with a counterfeit $100, they likely didn’t expect it would lead to the confiscation of $50,000 in fake currency, guns, knives, bottles of GHB, and the recovery of their ex-lover’s mutilated body.

The 38-year-olds were involved in a sexual relationship with an unidentified third man, police claim, who they decided to rob for drugs, but “wound up” killing. Without a missing person report filed, authorities didn’t notice his absence. But there his sat, in a plastic tub, buried beneath the basement in Mundt’s home — and cops only found the body after Banis ratted out his lover.
