Why don't they interrogate the victims to pumped them for future info and get rich?
Because the future mob would know what you did and probably kill you for it.
You mean the mob that risks its own existence each and every time it sends someone back in time?

In the future where time travel is illegal the mob is more worried about being found with dead bodies than with a time machine. Any decent prosecutor and investigator will put two and two together and have them convicted of murder with the time machine as the murder weapon.
How exactly? You can't prove murder. The best you're gonna get them on is kidnapping. Unless you try to go back in time and investigate, which you can't, because it's illegal
Yes, because proof can't be garnered from exhumations, news reports, and etc. from all those corpses jaunted into the past through a known if highly illegal means. Not to mention that those hitmen in the past are still commiting murder in their own timeline.

Admittedly, I haven't seen the movie yet so I don't know if they're using magic (err, "some technological means") of disposing of the corpses... but if not, even an unidentified dead guy is still a dead guy.

I'm sure the movie is good, mind you. But that doesn't mean the background events driving the scenario aren't kind of dumb.
