Just One More Thing:

Wherefore art thou, Romeo?

By Thomas Hunt

His deeds forgotten and his remains misplaced, Frank Romeo is a mysterious figure in New Orleans underworld history.

Recalled by history merely as one of eleven men murdered in an 1891 lynch mob assault on Orleans Parish Prison, Romeo, also known as Romero, actually served a key, longtime role in the evolution of organized crime in southern Louisiana.

Eleven and a half pages including eight images and two and a half pages of notes.
