Sam Giancana (May 24, 1908 - June 19, 1975) was an American mobster who was boss of the Chicago Outfit from 1957 to 1966. Born Gilormo Giangana in Chicago's West Town neighborhood of Smith Park, an Italian immigrant community known as "The Patch", to Antonio Giangana and Antonia DeSimmona from Castelvetrano, Sicily, Italy, Salvatore Mooney Giancana ("Mooney" for "Looney", meaning "Crazy") joined the 42 Gang (Forty-Two Gang) teenage street gang started during Prohibition, and developed a reputation in organized crime which gained him the notice of the leaders of the Chicago Outfit, which he joined during the late 1930s. He was rejected from service in the United States Army by his local draft board for being a psychopath. From the 1940s through the 1950s, he controlled the illegal gambling, illegal liquor distribution, and political rackets in Louisiana. In the early 1940s, Giancana was involved in Chicago's African-American lottery payout system for the Outfit, after having ousted Giancana's African American prison mate and lottery chief, Eddie Jones. In 1957, he became the boss of the Chicago Outfit. Giancana and the Mafia are reputed to have been involved in John F. Kennedy's victory in the 1960 presidential election. During the 1960s, he was recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in a plot to assassinate Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Giancana along with Mafia leaders Santo Trafficante Jr. and Carlos Marcello are reputed to have been directly involved with the assassination of of John F. Kennedy. In 1965, Giancana was convicted of contempt of court, serving one year in prison. After his release from prison, Giancana fled to Cuernavaca, Mexico. In 1974, he was deported to the United States, returning to Chicago. Giancana was murdered on June 19, 1975, in Oak Park, Illinois, shortly before he was scheduled to testify before the Church Committee regarding his work for the CIA regarding the Castro assassination plots.
