Speculation swirled as to who killed Siegel and why. The most popular theory was that the gangster had gotten in hot water with his organized crime pals over his handling—or mishandling—of the Flamingo casino project in Las Vegas. Whatever the reason for the murder, no one was ever charged in connection with Siegel’s death and it remains one of the more intriguing cold cases.

However, in 2012, some 65 years after the killing, a man has emerged who believes he knows who pulled the trigger that night and the circumstances surrounding Siegel’s death sentence.
