Tony Accardo


On this day in 1992 we would mark the passing of the real Joe Batters, who passed away of heart failure in Barrington Hills, Illinois at the age of 86.

Despite an arrest record dating back to 1922, Tony Accardo spent only one night in jail. He moved The Outfit into new operations and territories, greatly increasing its power and wealth during his time as boss.
