Blam! Blam! Bram.
At 6:00 am on this date five years after the Prohibition went into affect, Murray Goff was driving a fare in his taxi when a large limousine rear ended him. Goff got out of his cab to investigate when out of the limousine jumped the driver and two other men who were cursing and waving pistols at Goff yelling at him to get back. The men took off on foot while Goff summoned a cop. The cop and the hack inspected the limo. On the floor of the passenger side was 37 year old David Bram with two bullets in his head. Bram had an extensive record for dealing drugs as well as bootlegging. In addition to New York he had been arrested in Detroit, Toledo, Chicago and Pittsburgh. He was also wanted in Kansas City where he escaped from custody the previous November 20, after appealing a five year sentence for a narcotics rap.
