Annals of Crime #67


Original Caption:

Chicago -- The body of a man with a "cross on his forehead" - slang for a marked man - lies under a one way street sign, late on May 29th. Police identified the dead man as Vincent James Sparri, about 40. They said he was gunned down by five men who shot him in the back twice and in the head at least three times. Authorities probed possible tie-ins with a recent million-dollar restaurant fire. (1958)

Ultimately even the latest Souvlaki/Bingo Night at the Tiki Bar & Grill couldn't cover the vig.
