Three Murder Syndicate Men at Police Station

Brooklyn -- Three of the 12 men arrested as suspects in an alleged murder syndicate which, according to Brooklyn District Attorney William O'Dwyer, is responsible for at least 12 recent slayings and may be linked to 21 other murders. Trigger men Harry Straus, Harry Malone, and Frank Abbadando may face the electric chair for their participation in the killings. The arrests began when a small-time gangster, fearful for his own life, "sang" to the District Attorney's office. (1940)

Straus, Malone, and Abbadando -- they're as multi-ethnic as an infantry platoon in a WWII movie.
