Mob Ties

The Jan./Feb. 2012 issue of Nevada Magazine carries an interview with Huntington Press author/subject and notorious ex-Vegas mobster Frank Cullotta, who has been instrumental in advising the National Museum of Organized Crime & Law Enforcement, a.k.a. The Mob Museum, which is due to open Feb., 2012.

Cullotta, shown at left in 1981, was a key member of Anthony Spilotro’s infamous Hole in the Wall Gang. Following are excerpts from the interview, which can be read in its entirety at
