Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel (February 28, 1906  – June 20, 1947) was an American mobster. Siegel was known as one of the most "infamous and feared gangsters of his day".Described as handsome and charismatic, he became one of the first front-page celebrity gangsters.He was also a driving force behind the development of the Las Vegas Strip.

CLUE#1 MURDER,INC

Murder, Inc. (or Murder Incorporated) was the name the news media gave to organized crime groups in the 1930s and '40s that acted as the enforcement arm of the Italian-American Mafia, Jewish mob, and connected organized crime groups in New York and elsewhere. Siegel was one of the founders and leaders of Murder, Inc.

CLUE#2 THE FLAMINGO

In late 1945, Bugsy and his "partners" came to Las Vegas. Vegas reportedly piqued Siegel and his mob's interest because of its legalized gambling and off-track betting.Siegel finally opened The Flamingo Hotel & Casino on December 26, 1946 at a total cost of $6 million. Allegedly, Siegel named the resort after his girlfriend, Virginia Hill, who loved to gamble and was nicknamed "Flamingo". It is reported that Siegel called her this because of her long, skinny legs.

CLUE#3 1947

On the night of June 20, 1947, as Siegel sat with his associate Allen Smiley in Virginia Hill's Beverly Hills home reading the Los Angeles Times, an assailant fired at him through the window with a .30 caliber military M1 carbine, hitting him many times, including twice in the head.No one was charged with killing Siegel, and the crime remains officially unsolved.
