London, Mar 4 (ANI): Italian-American gangster Al Capones favourite spaghetti sauce recipe has been found 62 years after his death.
The Sun has reported that Capones great-nephew Dominic Capone, 33, who played the Scarface gangster in a TV documentary, plans to market the mix.
He said: Itll make Chicago famous for something more than tommy guns.
Alphonse Gabriel “Al” Capone, commonly nicknamed Scarface, was a gangster who led a crime syndicate dedicated to smuggling and bootlegging of liquor and other illegal activities during the Prohibition Era of the 1920s and 1930s.
Born in 1899 Brooklyn to Southwestern Italian immigrants Gabriele and Teresina Capone, Capone began his career in Brooklyn before moving to Chicago and becoming the boss of the criminal organization known as the Chicago Outfit.
By the end of the 1920s, Capone had gained the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation following his being placed on the Chicago Crime Commission’’s “public enemies” list.
Although never successfully convicted of racketeering charges, Capone’’s criminal career ended in 1931, when he was indicted and convicted by the federal government for income-tax evasion. (ANI)
