  • Make sure to leave your questions for our Post Mortem episode down below!

    • You should do the murder "the act"

    • BuzzFeed Unsolved Network make an episode of the Mackenzie Poltergeist..! Guarantee Shane will believe then! Lol seriously... messed up case though lol

    • Is Shane really from Chicago or from the suburbs 🤔

    • Why do you guys always add “wheeze”? I love it though 😂

  • That was not a carbine that you showed you showed a garand

  • "Expert with 30. carbine" Shows picture of M1 Garand

  • 11:20 dont you mean he shot his wife then himself

  • “You really want something done, go to those boys in Chicago” 😭 Shane knows how them boys roll in Chicago back then 😅💯

  • nobody is going to believe this but I'm related to him... My mom told me

  • I just solved it. It was............ THE MOB DU NUN NAAAA

  • Hmmm banana fish

  • 9:09 😂😂😂

  • Says 30 caliber carbine shows a m1 rifle

  • $250k profit compared to a 6mil usd capital? That is terrible, and yeah, if I was a mob boss i'd have that dude pay for such thing too.

  • This is how many people will go to shanes funeral if he waS murdered I I I v

  • i’ve lived in vegas my entire life and have never heard of this guy let alone know that a mob existed in my city

  • wait, how did the killer get to shoot 9 rounds even though the 30 caliber rifle can only fire 8 rounds?

  • I get so happy when I find an Unsolved episode that I haven't watched yet. It really makes madej

  • 16:51 LOL

  • Was that picture of the mob guy getting assassinated in the booth at the restaurant a picture of Rich Evans from Red Letter Media with the top half of his head blacked out? WTF!?!?

  • My aunt and cousins live in an old house with a giant vault safe, 3 feet of concrete all the way around it, and secrete rooms throughout the house. My mom suspects Bugsy Seigal used to live there, because he used to live in the westchester area.

  • As someone who's lived in Vegas his whole life and is of Italian descent I can say that while the Mob no longer exists here it's still a huge part of the culture and all those old casinos like the Flamingo that still exist are a constant hangout for the older Vegas generation that still remember those times their shadow still looms over this whole city

  • Bugsy died on my b-day

  • You should do an episode on Marilyn Monroe

  • What are Ryan and Shane's Zodiac signs? I know that's random but I'm just wondering

  • He looks a bit like... *John Deacon*

  • Does anyone wanna talk about how cute Ryan's shirt is?? ^-^

  • The gun shown was a M1 grand, nine shots were fired M1 grand would only shoot 8 rounds before reloading

  • 7:00 thought my phone died 😐

  • Bugs house has these pillars just like the White House in California

  • Bugs house in California elvis his house in Tennessee. It has the White House resemble that’s so incredible

  • Ha a gamble

  • I wana live in. Bugs house

  • Born under the bean as well! Best pizza in the world and we don't mess around!

  • I don't care about the risk, I'll go to your funeral, Shane!


  • I went absolutely feral when they mentioned Lucky Luciano

  • i dont know if there's any overlap between Critical Role and Unsolved, but i gotta say, its kinda weird how much Taliesin Jaffe looks like Bugsy Siegel. like. we all know that Taliesin is an eldritch god that time has forgotten, but i didnt expect any of his many past lives had ever actually been killed.

  • I bet he wanted the gaba ghoul

  • Did anyone else notice Ryan’s mug had flamingos on it? 😂

  • Another Chicago boy yes!!

  • I love Ryan’s mug! I want it ! 😍🥰


  • Michael Corleone killed Bugsy

  • Have Respect For The men who helped build this country!! The Italian Mafia lives by Respect, Respect that is earned! And That They Did!!

  • Why is this unexplained ? Seems like you explained his murder rather well.

  • The one guy (Ryan??? No? Idk their names) looks and sounds a lot like Adam Scott.

    • Andro thanks!

    • guy on the left is Shane, guy on the right is Ryan

  • Wowwwww these youngins actually have no clue who the real Lucky Luciano is/was!!! Unbelievable...

  • 12:16 according to beemo.

  • I'm always going with the death bed confession!!!

  • When they say they were involved in bootlegging I imagine a bunch of touch mobsters going into the theatre to film the show with shaky cam and bad audio

  • Chicago mob don’t fucka aroun

  • Theory one is the most likely one in my opinion I mean he confessed that he murdered him
