Vincent "Mad Dog" Coll
Raised in The Bronx borough of New York City, the 1920s saw Donegal born Vincent Coll engage in the risky but lucrative scam of kidnapping gangsters and seeking ransoms for their release. It was the mayor of New York, Jimmy Walker, who christened him ‘Mad Dog’ following a botched hit on Joey Rao, during which one child was tragically killed and others wounded. On February 8th, 1932, Coll finally met his deserved end when he was gunned down by a vengeful henchman.
