On this day in 1877 Ignazio Lupo was born. Lupo the Wolf was born in Corleone before moving to New York in 1898 at the age of 21.

He became a part of the newly formed Morello crime family and was responsible for at least 60 mob hits from the age of 21 through to the age of 33.

He was then slung into prison on a 30 year sentence but came out after only 10.

During this period the National Crime Syndicate had been established by Lucky Luciano and Lupo was forced into early retirement.
