From George H. White to Sam Wear
Letter from George H. White to U.S. Attorney Sam Wear regarding an investigation into Carl Carramusa. Carramusa is accused of being a representative of the Kansas City Narcotic Syndicate, a subsidiary of the Kansas City Mafia. The letter provides a history of Impostato's entry into Kansas City organized crime through John Lazia after arriving from Chicago in 1929, and connects the Kansas City narcotics trade with St. Louis, Tampa, Havana, and other cities. Carramusa, along with numerous other associates, received a total of 155 counts of narcotics violation charged in 1942, with many of the charged entering pleas of guilty and serving jail and probation sentences, with evidence provided by Carramusa's cooperation with the government. He was murdered the next year in Chicago, Illinois and an investigation into that crime was being conducted at the time of the letter.
