Armand Rava's 1958 disappearance/murder have never been fully explained. He was reported to have been murdered during a card game. Rava's unexplained demise is typical of Mafiosi who went missing in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The most well known of these was the abduction, and presumed murder, of Anthony Strollo aka "Tough Tony" Bender. Mobster Joseph Vallachi mentioned Rava in his testimony.
Mobster turned informant Jimmy "the Weasel" Fratianno and Las Vegas gambler Gus Greenbaum were suspected in the slayings of hoodlums Anthony Brancato and Anthony Trombino. The Los Angeles Police department surmised that both criminals were desperate for money. Looking for action they parked their Oldsmobile on a quiet street near Hollywood Blvd. Soon both were killed in a flash of gunfire.
