Organized Crime Figure. He was a member of Chicago's West side gang under Dion O'Bannion. He is often credited with inventing the "one-way ride," taking Philadelphia gangster John Dougherty (alias Duffy) for a car ride in 1923, but the "honor" of creating the one-way ride goes to Earl "Hymie" Weiss. Louis Alterie did invent the ambush murder which involved renting an apartment close to the home or office of an intended victim and staging a surprise attack. He is also said to be the only gangster during the 1920s to execute a horse. His fellow gangster friend Samuel Morton died after being thrown from that horse in 1923. His other aliases include "Three Gun," "Diamond Jack," and "Kid Hays." He was buried under the name Leland Deveraigne in an unmarked grave.
