|Kansas City|  Carl Civella

Birth: January 28, 1910

Death: October 2, 1994

Carl "Corky" Civella was leader of the Kansas City crime syndicate following the death of his brother, longtime crime boss Nicholas Civella, after heading day-to-day operations during the mid-1970s. His reign was brief however as, in 1984, he was convicted along with much of the high ranking leadership (including his son Anthony Civella) for the syndicate's role in skimming operations from Las Vegas casinos throughout the 1970s. Sentenced to serve a 10-20 year prison sentence in September 1984, another ten years was added on an unrelated charge and eventually died while his son was serving his second prison sentence on October 2, 1994.
