Final number for McNamara's band

Michael McNamara was a small time gangster with arrest in different cities for passing bad checks, forgery, posing as a revenue agent and selling drugs but it appears that it was for bootlegging that the forty-year old hoodlum was bumped off.
Eighty-one years ago today his body was found in some bushes behind a Queens cemetery and evidence showed that he was brought to the spot in a car, then dragged across the road and down by a stream then left in the bushes. McNamara had been shot once under the chin and twice in the heart. On his body was found a book containing a list of New York City nightclubs, which led police to suspect that he was a bootlegger.
