TOMBSTONE OF FRANK NITTI (NITTO) - Mount Carmel Cemetery, Hillside, Cook County, IL
Scarface Al's right-hand man was Frank "The Enforcer" Nitti. He ran things in Chicago for Capone while Capone served his short stint at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia and was also instrumental in Chicago's gangland scene after Capone was convicted and imprisoned for Income Tax Evasion. Nitti committed suicide in 1943. Ironically, he is buried about 75 - 100 yards from Al.
