Frank Nitti, nicknamed “The Enforcer,” was an Italian-American gangster and one of Al Capone‘s top henchmen, Nitti was in charge of all money flowing through the operation and upon Capone's arrest and conviction on tax charges, Nitti succeeded Capone as boss of the Chicago Outfit. Intensely claustrophobic and facing serious charges from the feds, Nitti shot himself three times (3rd time was the charm) and committed suicide rather than spend years in a jail cell.
