‘Graphic’ long-lost autopsy reports of the Al Capone’s Valentine’s Day massacre

Long-forgotten autopsy reports written after the 1929 Valentine’s Day Massacre have been unearthed – and have given a new account of one of Chicago’s bloodiest crimes.

The files, which also include inquest transcripts, were tucked away in a metal file cabinet in a Cook County government warehouse, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

They describe in detail the injuries sustained by the seven men who died that day, gunned down by a group of gangsters dressed as police officers. Five of them worked for George ‘Bugs’ Moran, a gangster and Al Capone’s rival.
