Photograph is a copy print of a larger original. Photograph caption dated June 23, 1947 reads, "The rub-out of Benjamin 'Bugsy' Siegel, 42, America's No. 1 gangster, remained a mystery today and continued to be a subject of conversation from here to New York. The sauve, personable Siegel, mowed down by a burst of gangland bullets at the fashionable Beverly Hills mansion of a beauteous southern heiress, is shown above in three character studies. As police continued the search for the killer, authorities feared that the worst outbreak of gang war in years may be brewing in America's underworld as the result of the Siegel rub-out."
