 Vito Genovese FBI Files

VITO GENOVESE FBI FILES

135 pages of files copied from FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and archived on CD-ROM, covering Vito Genovese. Genovese was referred to as a top mafia officer and had been arrested for homicide, assault, robbery, carrying a concealed weapon, narcotics, alcohol, gambling, and garment industry shakedowns. In the 1920's and 1930's Genovese was Lucky Luciano's right hand man. In 1937, he fled to Italy to escape a murder charge. While in Italy, he befriended Benito Mussolini. After the war, he was returned to the United States to face trial. In 1945, the key witness in the case, Peter La Tempa, was poisoned while in protective custody and Genovese was released. He is reputed to have become "boss of all the bosses" through the murders of several competing bosses including Willie Moretti and Albert Anastasia. He is also believed to have made an attempt on the life of Frank Costello in 1957. In 1958, he was convicted on narcotic charges and sentenced to 15 years in federal prison. In 1969, Genovese died of a heart attack while housed at the Medical Center for Federal Prisoners, in Springfield, Missouri.

The Files contain approximately 100 narrative pages. The documents consist of FBI records concerning Vito Genovese dating from 1957 to 1969. The documents consist of various anti-racketeering investigations and an investigation regarding allegations of drug trafficking within the U.S. Penitentiary, Atlanta, Georgia, where he was incarcerated for federal narcotics violations
