Todays subject is Frank Feddelle. Francisco had been out of jail for five months following a two year stretch in Sing Sing. On this date in 1925 The twenty-four year old gangster, who lived at 178 Union Street, Brooklyn, was talking with two men outside a tenement on the corner of President and Hicks streets when the conversation turned into an argument. At the same time the two men speaking to Feddelle drew their guns and killed the ex-convict with shots to the neck, chest and heart. The gunmen then ran through a tenement and hopped some fences for an escape. Police believed that Feddelle was killed over a bootleggers feud.
