Carl Deluna Dies

Former Kansa City mob underboss Carl “Tuffy” DeLuna passed away on July 21 from natural causes. He was 81. In the 1995 movie Casino, a character based on DeLuna kept detailed records of organized crime’s Las Vegas casino skimming operations. In real life, DeLuna did in fact keep such records, which were seized in an FBI raid on his home in 1979. Those documents eventually led to the conviction of several mobsters, including DeLuna himself, for their roles in the skim.
