Jimmy Hoffa at a 1959 Racketeering hearing. Who killed Hoffa and why?

Hoffa, a hero to many working Americans, played a major role in the growth and development of the trucking union.

Find out more about Al Capone on Tuesday, July 22nd at 7 pm

Al Capone (front and center) being escorted to the train in Chicago that will take him to U. S. Federal Penitentiary in Atlanta. U. S. Marshal Laubenheimer is to his right and the car thief transported with him is between them in the second row. In the second row, far right with the white hat, is almost certainly Eliot Ness.

Al Capone: Icon airs on Tuesday, July 22nd at 7 pm on channels 3 and 3-1.
