Mob Moll, 1951: Virginia Hill, also known as the "queen of the gangster molls," was the girlfriend of Brooklyn-born mobster Bugsy Siegel. Hill was coincidentally out of town when her beau was slain in her home, and shot through the window with a rifle. Here, the mob moll, who claimed to be in the dark about her lover's criminal connections, testifies at the 1951 Kefauver hearings in an investigation about the extent of organized crime.
