9781609497330: The Boys in Chicago Heights: The Forgotten Crew of the Chicago Outfit (True Crime)

Chicago Heights was long the seat of one of the major street crews of the Chicago Outfit, but its importance has often been overlooked and misunderstood. The crew's origins predate Prohibition, when Chicago Heights was a developing manufacturing center with a large Italian immigrant population. Its earliest bosses struggled for control until a violent gang war left the crew solidified under the auspices of Al Capone. For the remainder of the twentieth century, the boys from Chicago Heights generated large streams of revenue for the Outfit through its vast gambling enterprises, union infiltration and stolen auto rackets. For the first time, the history of the Chicago Heights street crew is traced from its inception through its last known boss.

About the Author:

Matthew Luzi has been pursuing true crime history in Chicago Heights for more than 25 years. He has contributed to A&E's biography of Al Capone, the History Channel's "Rogue's Gallery" program, and published works by John Binder, Jeff Thurston, and Art Bilek.

Review:

"The book was a labor of love for Luzi, who spent years researching it. He conducted personal interviews, scoured history books and newspaper articles, and even milked family connections to flesh out the book's story." --Casey Toner, Southtown Star



"...I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the Chicago Heights Street Crew. It not only provides a well researched history of the crew, but also explains how the boys from Chicago Heights became an important, yet little known, part of the Chicago Outfit." --Robert M. Lombardo, Springer Science + Business Media New York 2013
