Clinton Anderson, the Police Chief on Beverly Hills raised the question with the FBI if a member of Patriarca’s organization could have been involved in the murder of Bugsy Siegel. 

“Anderson said his only interest in this matter was the similarity in the modus operandi in the killing of Bugsy Siegel in Beverly Hills, California, on June 20, 1947, and the earlier killing of James Letendre in Rhode Island.”
