As for the information on the manifest...
The name of his father is actually blank. However he does state that his father is in "Aci Castello" and lists that as his place of birth.
( father - Grevina Grasso refers to the passenger on the line above, Salvatore Grasso.)
The name of the cousin to whom he is going is Salvatore Cernuto at 2105 First Ave., NYC

Killed?

Here is the NYC Death Index listing

You can send for the death record using the above Certificate #5174 and Borough of Bronx. It should give the cause of death.
