Reports coming in from Chicago appear to indicate that Neapolitan born US crime kingpin Al Capone has passed away. In prison. Suffering from syphylis.
Capone was implicated in the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre, which involved the slaughter of rival gang boss, Irishman Bugs Moran's gang by machine gun toting gangsters cunningly disguised as cops.
The real life tragedy was reflected in the movie 'Some Like It Hot' starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon.
A bystander outside Joliet jail in Illinois, which also featured strongly in 'The Blues Brothers' movie told us:
"This is devastating. I don't know which way to turn. Michael Jackson, John Dillinger, and now Big Al. Who's next? Answer me that one: Who's next"
The Queen of England, Margaret Thatcher, and Mickey Rourke were unavailable for comment.
More death related devilment as we get it.
