Killing of 'Tough Chick' Monaco

Post by THunt » Mon, Oct 29, 2018, 9:48 am

On this date (October 29) in 1911, Frank "Tough Chick" Monaco is stabbed to death by Nellie Lener as he attempts to rob a safe in the home of Lener's mother. The incident is regarded as the opening of a feud between underworld forces in the East Harlem Italian colony.
