Andrew D'Amato was the twenty-four year old proprietor of The Bible Club, a Harlem speakeasy. On this date in 1931, while he was in a restaurant or speakeasy three bullets were fired into his skull and then a tablecloth was wrapped around his head to prevent a bloody mess. He was then loaded into a car, driven outside of the city and tossed out near Mt. Vernon where a passing milkman found him early in the morning.
