The Murder of Gambler Arnold Rothstein
by Robert Grey Reynolds, Jr
Arnold Rothstein's mistress was sought by police in Coral Gables and later in Jacksonville, Florida. This happened after the gambler's former bodyguard, Fatty Walsh, was killed while playing a card game in the Biltmore Hotel in 1929. Were Walsh's murder and the murder of Brooklyn gangster Frankie Yale connected? Rothstein's killer was never found although George McManus was tried and acquitted.
