The Detroit Mafia, with the longest actively reigning mob boss in the country, has stayed ahead of the FBI for more than 30 years. Four months after 17 of the mob's hierarchy were indicted, the Free Press unraveled a slick casino deal in a tiny Nevada town that likely will be the cornerstone of the mob's undoing. The newspaper also uncovered the mob's infiltration of the Edgewater casino, connections that had been hidden for two decades, and revealed how the government's principal witness, a long-dead mobster from Toledo, will whisper his story form the grave. The second day revealed how the mob's reputed kingpins have operated shrewdly and discreetly through apparently legitimate businesses and real estate developments, making millions for their empire.
