ST. VALENTINE'S DAY MASSACRE/CAPONE FBI FILES
107 pages of St. Valentine's Day Massacre FBI files copied from records at FBI headquarters in Washington D.C. On February 14, 1929 seven members of the Bugs Moran gang were killed. After the St. Valentine's Day Massacre Bugs Moran's rival Al Capone was launched into the national spotlight. The FBI documented information on informants and news clippings concerning the killings for year after the murders. Includes a suggestion by a J. Edgar Hoover that a false story be planted, to test for a leak in The FBI chicago office. In a memo Hoover stated that a Chicago newspaper was wiretapping phones, and may have gotten "scoops" by tapping the FBI Chicago office phones. It was then suggested that agents in Chicago leave the office and use pay-phones for the discussion of sensitive matters.
