Bugsy Siegel “Murder Mansion” Lists for $17 Million

Gangster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel was a bootlegger, a hitman, and a driving force behind the development of the Las Vegas Strip. The charismatic Jewish mobster, as seen in the 1991 Oscar-winning movie Bugsy starring Warren Beatty as Bugsy, was one of the first front-page celebrity gangsters. He hob-nobbed with politicians and Hollywood elites, dated starlets and royalty, and even tried to sell weapons to Benito Mussolini. Upside down on his Flamingo Casino deal and accused of stealing from the mob, the notorious character was assassinated by a sniper, who shot him with an M1 Carbine through the window of his mistress’s swanky Beverly Hills pad. The murder was never solved, but the “murder mansion,” a stunning Spanish Colonial, has hit the market at $16.995 million.
