Dead gangsters next door

October 29, 2008

Susan pointed out that my neighborhood was in the news yesterday. The article is from a series about gangsters in LA and this picture is from a gangster killing that happened in 1951 in front of the house just south of ours.

[The photo is by Bill Murphy/Los Angeles and the article appeared in the LA Times on Oct.29, 2008.]

The gangster squad
Detectives and reporters surround the car containing the bodies of the Two Tonys: Tony Trombino, 31, and Tony Brancato, 36, slain on Ogden Drive, half a block from Hollywood Boulevard. Both were shot through the back of the head, August 1951.
