Joseph "Hop Toad" Giunta
Original name: Giuseppe Giunta
Birth: 1887
Death: May 8, 1929
Cook County
Illinois, USA

Organized Crime Figure. He was a high ranking member of the Capone gang who formed a secret alliance with Al Capone enemy Joe Aiello. Giunta planned to kill Capone and take over his operations, and enlisted the help of Capone triggermen John Scalise and Albert Anselmi with the promise of higher positions when Giunta was in power. Capone found out about the plan and invited Giunta, Scalise and Anselmi to a dinner party. During dinner Capone brought out an Indian club he'd received as a gift and proceeded to beat the three men to near death. Capone then allegedly finished the job with gunshots. The bodies were found the next day in Douglas Park. The bodies of Scalise and Anselmi were returned to Sicily for burial. No one was ever convicted for the crimes. (bio by: Bobby Hart)
