IDENTITY OF CHICAGO GIRL MURDERED AT
BRIDGEPORT DISCOVERED BY DAY BOOK
The Day Book has discovered
the identity of the Chicago girl
murdered on a lonely stretch of
road near Bridgeport Conn., on
the night of October 22. ,
She was Rosa Gannuc"cio Mi
laho, daughter of Antonio Gan
nuccio, 1126 'Tilden stree't, and
Mrs. Rosa Gannuccio,' 61 1 Ewing
street, and the wife of'Pietro Mi
lano, 555 Sebor street.
There was no clue to the girl's
real name at, the time oi the mur
der, .
Just a.few days before the mur
der she arrived in Bridgeport
from Chicago. On that fatal night
five men met her in a restaurant
and decoyed her into an-automo-'
bile.
The chauffeur of the automo
bile was ordered to drive to Strat
ford, Conn.; from there,, to Para
dise Green.; at Paradise Green he
was told to "keep on going."
A few, miles outside of Para
dise Green is a long, lonely
stretch of road, bordering on the
.old cemetery of Putney. Here the
five men and the girl left the car
and the chauffeur was ordered to
drive on and to return in an hour.
Thej:hauffeui drove on, but re
turned when he heard the sound
of five revolver shots.
The five men had gone. The
dead body of the girl was lying
just inside the gates of the ceme
tery. She had been shot through
the head five times.
Joe Buonomo, James Mattio
and Frank Piscella were arrested
the next day. Buonomo confessed
to the murder and swore that the
woman -was his wife.
He might have been believed
had not the card t of Mrs. 'Alice
Phillips Aldrich of the Chicago
Law and Order League been
found !4in the murdered girl's
pocket. .
This led the police and federal
authorities to believe that the
girl had been concerned in some
white slaving plot -and had been
about to squeal on the white slav
ers when she was murdered.
Ever since then federal author
ities and police have been work
ing hard on the case,
They first identified the girl as
Rose Bruno j then as Rose Bun
nis; then as Rose White, former
inmate of Nick Colisimo's notoy
