Vandalism[edit]

Antonio Rico Giuseppe Giordano (June 2, 1914 – August 29, 1980) was the boss of the St. Louis crime family.

Whoever wrote the name really thought they were real funny. Very lame. His name was Anthony Joseph Giordano. He was also born on June 24, 1914, not June 2.

By the way, most of the stuff in the rest of the article is either inaccurate or simply made up. Whoever wrote it also added some source links to make people think it was researched but even then the information in the article doesn't match information from the links. It's hard to believe someone could make as many mistakes that are in this article in a mere ten sentences.

So, once again, someone on Wikipedia wrote an article. Then, after the article was written, they did a Google search and threw up a few links they found to make the article appear legit. And that's why Wikipedia has the poor reputation it does as the place online NOT to go if you are searching for accurate, well-researched articles. Lock & Key (talk) 06:55, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

  • If you have sources of better information, please share them. If you check the edit history, you will see that the page started as a copy-and-paste of one of 3 Allan May articles with editors trying to remove or rewrite copyright infringement.[1] The middle names lack a source. The "June 2" birth date comes from May. Again, if you have better information from published sources, you can help by citing those sources and fixing the factual errors. • Gene93k (talk) 07:48, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Here's a start (it's from the Social Security Death Index: ANTHONY GIORDANO 24 Jun 1915 Aug 1980 63109 (Saint Louis, Saint Louis City, MO) (none specified) 557-24-6813 California.

By the way, I've seen Allan May's articles and none of them have a June 2 birthdate. And Giordano was born in St. Louis. It was never Antonio (which is Spanish, I might add) Giuseppe Giordano, and the "Rico" part was also made up. Anthony in Italian is Antonino.

Giordano wasn't related to the Licavoli family of St. Louis and Detroit. However, he was related to some alleged mobsters in Detroit.

My information comes from FBI files, contemporary news articles, police intelligence reports, etc. I can't put up an online link to them because the stuff I have isn't online, and I'm not putting it online because I paid money and invested time in the information I have compiled and I'm not simply going to give it away.

I will say it looks a lot better than when I first saw it. It has been "thinned out" and so there are less inaccuracies. Just lose the Antonio Rico Giuseppe Giordano thing and the Licavoli relation and you'll have an okay stub.

Also, I believe I know who wrote the original stub with all the inaccuracies and added the made-up Italian version of Giordano's name. I have come across this person before online and all he does is post stuff he's made up about the St. Louis Mafia for whatever strange reason. It's very odd what this person does, to say the least.
