Events leading to the takeover of the Mustang Ranch Bordello by the U.S. Dept. of Justice in August, 1999. Decades long legal battles between D.A. Bill Raggio and Joe Conforte. How Conforte tried to set up Raggio with an underage girl in the Riverside Hotel. When sent to prison for extortion, authorities let Conforte run a legal casino inside prison walls. When Conforte was released, he teamed up with Storey County elected sheriff Bob Del Carlo as partners in The Cabin in the Sky Restaurant in Gold Hill. Why was Argentine boxing champ Oscar Bonavena gunned down outside the Mustang Ranch in May 1976. Was the hit ordered by Conforte? What was the relationship between Bonavena and Sally Conforte? Why was Ross Brymer sentenced to only two years for the slaying, yet was hammered with a life sentence for selling Valium tablets in Washoe County. Why was Gee Jon, an itinerant Chinese Tong hit man in Mina, Nevada, destined to become the first person put to death in the United States by lethal gas. The truth about the execution of serial killer Jesse Bishop, who was the last person put to death in Nevada by this manner. When the feds went after one of the own, U.S. District Judge Harry Claiborne for bribery in Las Vegas, why did they proselytize ex-con Joe Conforte, himself a fugitive from justice, and name him their stellar witness? Did they get the conviction expected or did Conforte burn them also? When Conforte again fled the country to avoid further prosecution, why were the feds successful in convicting only one of his brothel employees, Shirley Colletti, for money transfers? Where is Shirley Colletti Today? Where is Joe Conforte?
