Encyclopedia > John Scalise

John Scalise (1900-1929) was an organized crime figure in the early 1900s. Scalise was involved with the mob starting early in his life. Sometime around age twenty, Scalise lost his right eye in an attack, which was then replaced with a glass eye. A little time after this incident, Scalise traveled illegally to America, finding his home in Chicago's Little Italy. While working for The Genna Brothers, Scalise met Albert Anselmi, who later became his crime partner and close friend. After spending time in and out of both court and jail, Scalise and Anselmi were released from prison in December of 1926 after a retrial involving the murder of a police officer. Then, in June of 1927 the two were tried and acquitted for the murder of the same officer. Finally, in the year 1929, Scalise was indicted on charges relating to the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. Shortly after the indictment, Scalise, Anselmi, and another man, Joseph Giunta were found dead on a road near Hammond, Indiana on May 8, 1929.
