LAS VEGAS -- You could call it the first major Las Vegas cold case, and perhaps the most famous. Who shot mob casino owner Bugsy Siegel? An author has been hunting clues from Las Vegas to Beverly Hills for years, and now there are new breaks in the case that shed light to a dark time six decades ago.
8 News NOW first told you about Warren Hull's amazing theory a little more than a year ago -- a down on his luck former soldier and socialite gets in with the wrong crowd and eventually gets picked to take Bugsy out.
Hull says evidence he has collected points to Bob MacDonald, a decorated war hero who turned to gambling with the mob after World War II. Right out of a film noir plot line, MacDonald eventually committed a murder-suicide with his wife just a mile away from the Siegel killing, with what is believed to be the same weapon.
