This is Part II of a 2-part series on the Life and Death of Benjamin ‘Bugsy’ Siegel. We are joined, once again, by the host of the Mysterious Circumstances Podcast, Justin Rimmel. We delve into Siegel’s humble beginnings just after the turn of the 20th century New York, to his rise in the Jewish Mafia, becoming one of the most violent yet charismatic, brutal, yet charming figures in mob history. Our story takes us to his time in Hollywood, rubbing elbows with some of the biggest celebrities of the time, his tumultuous relationship with Virginia Hill, the Mafia Queen out of the Chicago Outfit, to when he moved on to fabulous Las Vegas, where he envisioned the most luxurious resort the yet to be gambling Mecca the town had ever seen – The Flamingo…all the way to his untimely death while he sat in is Los Angeles living room reading the evening paper. Thank you Justin, for all of your hard work in putting this episode together for us!
