UPDATE - Six days after Lewis was attacked, the thug who had sliced Lewis’ throat, was found in a south side alley - shot to death. A few months later, the other two thugs were also found shot to death. Gangster Vincent “The Schemer” Drucci, a friend of Lewis, lived on the eighth floor here at he time of the attack. In 1933, Dr. Harold Cassidy and Dr. Wilhelm Loeser were living here when they performed plastic surgery on the face of John Dillinger.
