Virginia Hill (1916-1966) was one of the most famous female mobsters. She was a courier for the national crime syndicate, moving thousands of dollars from one mobster to the next, even overseas. She purportedly slept with many gangsters, but was Bugsy Siegel's girlfriend. She fled to Austria after the Government went after her for tax evasion. She died on the ski slopes of Salzburg, Austria after ingesting a heavy dose of sleeping pills. She was 49 years old.
John Linardi aka Chut (1908-1993) was a bit of a mafia enigma to the feds. The NY born mobster was listed in two families: Gambino and Lucchese, as a soldier. He did have a crime sheet that mentions narcotics violations, assault, robbery, homicide and policy. He was considered a bookie and policy operator and he was part of a large heroin distribution ring. Other mobsters he was associated with were: Patsy Pagano, Angelo Tuminaro, John Ormento, Tony Mirra and Sammy Santora.
