Historic, but not famous

Barnett Baff was a poultry dealer, murdered on November 24, 1914 by an organized crime syndicate that represented the “poultry trust”. The trust extorted $10 per truckload of poultry from merchants.  Baff’s death led to an investigation of organized crime in New York City and led to the resignation of Captain John McClintock, the deputy Police Commissioner.
