August 25, 2021

Al Capone was a reputed gangster, but also a family man according to his granddaughters, who are now auctioning off his belongings. They say the items, which include a diamond-encrusted match case and his favorite firearm, have never left the family’s possession after his death in 1947. Witherell’s Auction House presents “A Century of Notoriety: The Estate of Al Capone” in Sacramento in October. Inside Edition Digital’s Mara Montalbano has more.
