A Strad is Exhibit A in Chicago mobster trialmain
Eugene Klein, a prison chaplain, pleaded guilty at his trial today in Chicago of trying to help mobster Frank Calabrese recover 250-year-old Stradivarius violin that had been hidden in his Wisconsin home. Klein, now 66, administered communion to Calabrese in 2011 at a Missouri jail where he was serving life for 13 murders. Calabrese died the following year.
So who in Chicago sold the killer his Strad?
