The Three Doms

BY J.P. RICH Off The Cuff/ganglandchicagowebsite@yahoo.com


The “Three Doms” were Dominick “Nags” Brancato (left), Dominick A. “Bell” DiBella (middle), and Dominic “Little Libby” Nuccio (right).

Brancato and DiBella were born in Louisiana in 1906 and 1902. Nuccio was born in Chicago in 1895.

Getting their start in the Capone gang as enforcers during Prohibition, the Three Doms sent shivers up the spines of some of the toughest men in Chicago. (Early reports indicate DiBella and Brancato may have originally been affiliated with the Aiello crime family led by Mafia boss Joseph Aiello, who was machine-gunned — allegedly at the behest of Al Capone — in 1930.)

By the early 1930s, the Three Doms lived in cold-water flats in the old Sicilian section on Chicago’s Near North Side. Of the three, Nuccio was the most notorious — at that time, at least.

Nuccio jumpstarted his criminal career as a member of the Gloriana gang. Operating in the mid-to-late 1910s, they were a small group of organized thieves and killers, primarily Italian, a few Irish. Led by Charles Gloriana, they committed burglaries, payroll robberies, and bank holdups.

On October 15, 1919, Charles Gloriana was indicted with gang member Carl Moretti for the murder of a payroll guard during a robbery. The case was eventually stricken from the court docket the following year when witnesses couldn’t be produced to testify at trial.

A hotel manager’s wife was surprised awake by a burglar looking for money and valuables on June 15, 1918. She was beaten and choked when she failed to comply. The burglar eventually snatched a wedding ring off her hand and fled.


Gloriana, Nuccio, and seven other Gloriana gang members were indicted by a grand jury for the violent residential burglary. On November 2, 1919, all nine defendants were convicted in the case and sentenced to 1-to-20 years to be served in Joliet State Prison. They remained free on bail during their appeals process.

On April 28, 1920, the Supreme Court reversed the convictions and remanded the defendants for a new trial, which was later dismissed.

The unresolved case was over.

Nuccio bid farewell to the Gloriana gang in the 1920s and joined the ranks of the Capone gang as a “torpedo” or gunman.

One of the most celebrated gangland slayings during Chicago’s “Beer Wars” occurred on November 10, 1924. Charles Dean “Deanie” O’Banion, leader of the North Side gang, was shot to death in his florist shop, Schofield’s, located at 738 North State Street. Nuccio was arrested for investigation, questioned about the killing, and released without the filing of formal charges.

In 1929, Nuccio was arrested with future Outfit bigshot Ross Prio in connection with a still discovered by Revenue agents, but the charges were later dropped. A succession of arrests, at least 20, occurred between 1918 and 1950. The only convictions were on minor charges resulting in fines.

Following a power struggle within the Chicago mob from 1943 to 1946 that left at least a half-dozen men dead, Ross Prio took over mob operations on the North Side. The Three Doms worked directly under him. They controlled gambling, prostitution, and extortion operations along Rush Street and throughout the Near North Side. Thus, their troop became known as the Rush Street crew.

Considered “a specialist on shakedown tactics,” DiBella was in charge of extorting bars, nightclubs, and restaurants. In addition to the protection racket, he also headed the crew’s juice loans. Nuccio and Brancato concentrated primarily on gambling. Nuccio took care of handbook operations, supervising some 40 gambling parlors. Brancato ran or collected tribute from dice, card, and other casino-style games. Another responsibility of Brancato was to supervise their prostitution interests.

Regardless of whatever specific duties the Three Doms performed, they were equal partners. All three shared the responsibilities of running the Rush Street crew and cut up crew funds equally before sending a cut to Ross Prio.

When it came to sheer terror, the Three Doms were unbeatable. Few crossed them. Those who tried, died.

On June 16, 1948, Doward Falcon, age 24, attempted to rape Nuccio’s 35-year-old wife, Inez, as she walked her dog in Lincoln Park. The Nuccios lived nearby in a beautiful apartment building located at 1936 North Clark Street. Falcon lived near the Nuccios with his wife and two kids at 1837 Lincoln Avenue. He worked as the head busboy at the Pump Room in the Ambassador East Hotel — a restaurant patronized by celebrities, socialites, politicians, and gangsters.

Inez Nuccio filed a police complaint. The next day, Falcon was arrested for assault with intent to rape. He soon found out who he tried to rape. He knew he was in big trouble after Mrs. Nuccio told him that her husband would kill him.

Doward Falcon bonded out of jail on the attempted rape charges and hoped the inevitable wouldn’t happen. Less than a month later — on July 10 — it happened. He was gunned down by two killers at the doorstep of his Lincoln Avenue residence.

The Three Doms were quickly arrested. Per usual, the charges didn’t stick. Nuccio had a clear-cut alibi. He was out of town. He and his wife were in Lake Geneva on the day of the murder. The police knew this because they had to go to Wisconsin to get him. DiBella and Brancato were released when witnesses failed to identify them.

Considering how he probably had his wife’s attempted rapist killed, it’s ironic that Dom Nuccio was questioned about the murders of two women prior to the Falcon incident: Rush Street dice girl Estelle Carey, who was brutally tortured to death on February 2, 1943, and Catherine “Tina” Jacobs, another dice girl who disappeared on September 18, 1947, only to be found a week later in a ditch in southwest Michigan.

While the murder of Doward Falcon was personal, most murders were strictly business.

The Three Doms were suspects in the killing of ex-Chicago Police Lieutenant William J. (Bill) Drury on September 25, 1950. He was fired from the department when he refused to stop investigating an Outfit hit. Bitter about losing his job for doing his job, he began feeding information about the Outfit to reporters. He was scheduled to testify in front of the Kefauver Crime Committee when it came to Chicago. Now prepared to expose Outfit operations before an investigative body, the Outfit had to act fast if they wanted to shut him up.

Less than a week before his scheduled testimony, Bill Drury was shot to death with a .45-caliber automatic and a shotgun as he backed his car into the garage of his Chicago home. Before he was slain, he informed a lawyer working for the Kefauver Committee: “It’s awfully hot. I need protection.”

On October 2, 1950, Senator Estes Kefauver received an anonymous letter about the Drury murder. He read it three days later during the start of the hearings held in Chicago so that it would become part of official record files.

The letter read: “Jack (Jake) Guzik and Charles Fischetti ordered Lt. Bill Drury killed. Guzik sent word to his North Side triggermen Dominic Nuccio and two other Dominicks (called the Three Doms) and Nuccio supplied three shotguns and .45 caliber pistol for job. After killing, killers returned to Nuccio’s saloon and hid guns. Everyone knows the Doms’ last names. Now go and get them lined up for the electric chair. They have good, crooked lawyers known as BB Boys.”

The so-called “B&B Boys” were lawyers George Bieber and Michael (Mike) Brodkin, who ran the Bieber & Brodkin Law Firm. They would allegedly do anything to aid mob-connected clients.

The Three Doms began slowing down by the late 1950s and stepped to the side for new blood. Vincent “Jimmy the Monk” Allegretti took over the day-to-day operations of Rush Street crew business and Joseph “Caesar” DiVarco became his number-two man.

By the late 1960s, the Three Doms semi-retired from criminal activity.

DiBella’s semi-retirement wouldn’t last long due to Ross Prio’s death in late 1972. DiBella was brought back into the day-to-day action as Prio’s replacement at the suggestion of Outfit boss of bosses Tony Accardo. He remained as boss of the North Side until he died of cancer at the age of 74 in 1976.

Nuccio died at the age of 84 in 1979.

Brancato was the last of the Three Doms to die. He held on just one year shy of 100 years old, dying in 2005.

I will note here that just because a man is a murder suspect or even arrested and questioned for murder or any other crime does not mean he is guilty of that murder or crime.

Doward Falcon was my Grandfather. He was gunned down in the ally way of his apartment complex by men in white suits (what my grandmother remembered.) she was cooking him potato soup, she heard the shots and ran down stairs where he died in her arms. What I do not see mentioned here is that what actually happened in the park. It was around 1am ( not sure of exact time) and the woman was walking her dog in the park alone ( not normal for one of the Dom's wives.) My grandfather was on his way home from work (running through the park at the time, it was dark, he bumped into her and when that happened she fell down. The charges of rape were unfounded. the coincidence here is that he was a Waiter/busboy at the Pump Room where all the men that were tried for his murder frequented. There is no telling what he may have overheard while working. My grandmother was left without a husband, my mother (3 months old at the time) and my Uncle (13 months old at the time) without a father. My grandmother had a POLICE escort to the train station when she left Chicago with her children (pretty odd huh.)It is not so much that I care if justice is served because all of those men are long gone. I care about what memory/impression that people are left with. I have heard the story from both my Grand mother (who has now passed) and Dowards sister Edith (who is also passed.) My grandfather was a wonderful young man, trying to take care of his new family. He was 24 when he was killed on July 10th 1948.

DRURY WAS IN PLAIN CLOTHES, ON HIS WAY HOME WHEN DOWNEY JUMPED ON THE RUNNING BOARD OF HIS 1925 FLINT BROUGHAM, AND PUT THE GUN TO DRURYS HEAD, AND TOLD HIM TO BACK UP INTO A NEARBY ALLEY. DRURY WAS A GOLDEN GLOVES BOXING CHAMPION, WAS A DET. SGT. IN 1927, WHEN THIS INCIDENT TOOK PLACE.

MOMO. DID YOU KNOW THAT POLICE OFFICERS MAKE THE BEST HITMEN, AND ARE FREQUENTLY RECRUITED BY THE SYNDICATE , TO WHACK SOMEONE? POLICE OFFICERD GO THROUGH THE TRAINING , AND GAIN THE EXPERIENCE, TO BE ABLE TO TAKE ANY WEAPON & MAKE IT SAFE, OR GET ON TARGET. THE BECOME ASTERS OF SURVEILLANCE. WHEN DRURY GOT MURDERED, THE KILLING TEAM WAS ASKED BE A FEW PEOPLE WHAT WAS GOING ON. IN 1950, YOU DID NOT QUESTION A AEMED MAN WITH A BADGE. THIS HAPPENED IN THE DRURY KILLING, AND THE MURDER OF ATTORNEY.. THE EYE WITS., TWO WOMEN THAT WITNESSED THE BAS KILLING, AND ONE PERSON QUESTIONES THE BACK UP TEAM OF KILLERS, HIDDEN SOMEWHAT IN CRIGLEYS GANGWAY, NEAR THE ALLEY. THE KILLING TEAMS PARKED THEIR CARS IN DIFFERENT SPOTS. ANY ONE WALKING BY AND TRYING TO INTEFERS WOULD HAVE BEEN BLOWN TO BITS. THE KILLERS STALKED OUT DRURYS SCHEDULE, WATCHED HIM FROM NEARBY AREASN WENT IN TO HIS BACKYARD AND PEERED INTO THE GARAGE WINDOWS, WHEN DRURY WAS NOT THEIR. DRURY FOUND THE FOOTPRINTS NEAT THE GARAGE WINDOWS. ABOUT TEN DAYS B/4 DRURY, MARIBOU SAW TWO MEN IN HER BACKYARD, BY HER FENCE, LOOKING KITTY CORNER AT DRURYS GARAGE. DRURY RARELY VARIED HIS PATTERN OF ROUTE, & E.T.A., FOR DINNER WITH HIS WIFE. HE USUALLY ARRIVED BETWEEN 6:00 P.M. AND 6:10 PM. HIS NEPHEW AND MY SELF WERE USUALLY THERE WAIYING FOR HIS ARRIVAL. HAD WE BEEN PRESENT THAT NIGHT , WE BOTH WOULD BE DEAD. WE OPENED HIS TWO SWINGING GARAGE DOORS, AND SET DOWN THW STEEL KICKSTANDS TO HOLS THE DOORS OPEN, SO HE COULD BACK RIGHT IN. IN SUMMER WE WERE REWARDED WITH A DIXIE CUP, OR A DREAMSICLE, OR A NICKEL. WHEN HE BOUGHT HIS NEW CADDY, HE WOULD TAKE US BOTH FOR A RIDE. IF YOU DID ANY READING AT ALL, YOU WOULD KNOW THAT A CORRUPTED POLICE OFFICER, MAKE THE BEST HIT MAN IN THE WORLD. I EXPERIENCED A RECRUITMENT IN THE MOST UNLIKELY ENVIROMENT, WITH A TEMPTING OFFER THAT I REFUSED,AND THEN IT TURNED UGLY. LIKE DRURY, I FEAR NO MAN, AND I WAS HONEST.. YOU NEED TO SHAPE UP, SHIP OUT, OR SHUTUP, UNTIL YOU GET SOME BRAINS...

Looks like a pretty lively debate going on in the forum here but it sounds like some of you guys know your stuff. If you wouldn't mind sharing what are the top recommended public library databases for Chicago prohibition era police and gang information. I've dug quite a bit into the internet and accessed newsbank for original articles and read a handful of books on the subject. I live about 3 hours from Chicago so it would be great if could target the best libraries for research.
