Remember Arthur Siegelman from the other day? Sure you do, the lifeguard who wanted to try bootlegging and disappeared, well two days later, Joseph Ferro another Johnny come-lately to the bootlegging game, was put on the spot. Unlike the former life guard however there is no mystery clouding Ferro’s murder. The youthful would be gangster-he was only twenty- was walking to his East Village home with his wife and his friend. As they were approaching Ferro's building, two gunmen jumped out of a doorway, ran up to the trio and fired a bullet into Ferro’s head. Another went into his friend's stomach. Both men were rushed to Bellevue Hospital where Ferro subsequently died and his pal's wound was labeled as mortal.
Hmmm wonder if Ferro and Siegelman were pals. Lets ask the magic 8 ball....."Try again." Damn!
