St. Valentine's Day Massacre investigation in a Chicago newspaper...
Item # 696079
December 24, 1929
CHICAGO SUNDAY TRIBUNE, Dec. 24, 1929
* Fred "Killer" Burke found to be involved in killings
* St. Valentine's Day Massacre investigations
* George 'Bugs' Moran & Al 'Scarface' Capone
* Best publication to be had - very rare as such
The top of page 3 has a one column heading: "PROVE BURKE GUNS KILLED 7 OF MORAN GANG" with subhead and two related photos. (see) Very early gun forensics here. Such reports are probably only reported in a Chicago publication, very rare as such. When it comes to gangsters, organized crime, and the nefarious activities born out of the Prohibition and Great Depression eras, no city is more in the forefront of our minds than Chicago - and what better newspaper can be found than the Chicago Tribune, self-proclaimed to be "The World's Greatest Newspaper"
