On this date in 1931, Andrew D'Amato,the twenty-four year old proprietor of The Bible Club, a Harlem speakeasy, was put on the spot.
Three bullets had been fired into his skull and then a
tablecloth was wrapped around his head to prevent a bloody mess. His body 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.
