Al Capone’s family searching for answers in Moose Jaw

REGINA – A documentary is in the works about long-rumoured ties between Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and an American criminal once branded public enemy number one.

Work is underway in Saskatchewan this week on Finding Al, a production about possible connections Al Capone had to the province during the prohibition era and the bootlegging that flowed from it.

Deirdre Capone, the Chicago gangster’s grandniece, says she hopes to find the truth about her great uncle — a man she describes as having a Robin Hood image among those who benefited from his crimes.

Deirdre Capone will be in Saskatchewan until Thursday.
