It looks as if my queue is now entirely empty and I have little to no desire to see that it is refilled.
I suppose that means I shall need to start actively posting instead of passively letting my interests run their course through automated means. How dull.
7 August 1951, Los Angeles, California: The bodies of Anthony Trombino and Anthony Brancato lie lifeless in an automobile found parked near Hollywood Boulevard. Both bodies were shot in back of neck and head. Bullet holes can be seen in windshield of their car.
The “Two Tonys”, as they were called, robbed the sports betting operation at the syndicate-controlled Flamingo Hotel and Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, escaping with $3,500 in cash. Neglecting to wear a mask during the robbery, Brancato was identified and placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list on June 27, 1951.
Having identified them as the Flamingo robbers, the mob was soon looking for Brancato and Trombino. Jack Dragna ordered their deaths and gave mobster Jimmy Fratianno the duty of setting up the hit. Fratianno contacted Brancato and Trombino and asked to meet them about a proposed bank robbery in Hollywood. However, the real purpose of the meeting was to kill them.
The Two Tonys murder would remain unsolved until Fratianno entered the federal Witness Protection Program over 25 years later and admitted to murdering the duo.
