Tellers: Albert W. Hicks

Jun 16, 04:18 PM
Albert W. Hicks (c. 1820 – July 13, 1860) was convicted as a triple murderer, and one of the last people executed for piracy in the United States. Historians place him as the first New York City legendary gangster figure, a bridge between the piracy of old and rise of a new "gangster nation" and we think he should be re-classified as a serial killer.
