The Murder of Albert Anastasia October 25, 1957 Park Sheraton Hotel New York CityeBook - 2015
Albert Anastasia headed up Murder Inc. a feared Mafia group that controlled the Brooklyn dockyards, segments of the fashion industry, and was notorious for administering gangland justice. On the morning of October 25, 1957 Anastasia was reclining in a barber's chair at the exclusive Park Sheraton Hotel in New York City's midtown Manhattan district. Two masked gunmen entered the barber shop with gloves on their hands and pumped five bullets into the Mafia chieftain. Despite fourteen eyewitnesses to the brutal murder, and one hundred detectives assigned to the case, the crime remained unsolved some six months later. A clue was found the day after the murder when police recovered one of the guns among the trash found in a litter basket beside the Park Sheraton. Anastasia's bodyguard admitted that he was in transit to the hotel when his boss was murdered? Yet why was he not there protecting him from the gunmen who carried out his assassination.--Provided by publisher.
