Surely you know the basics about the kind of trouble that your father got into. What did your mom tell you that he did for a living? Have you heard or read the newspaper accounts about your father's murder? The library in Covington has the old newspapers on microfilm if you want to read the articles. What kind of information are you looking for?(If I may ask without sounding too nosey. I'd like to help you find the info. that you want, but am not sure what you are looking for) Take care

April thanks so much for your information I live in Las Vegas now and have been living here even before my father was murdered...I do know how my father lived his life...I am not ashamed of his life style athough I dont believe it was the right way to live...I just dont believe anyone has to die that way...I loved my father very much and would like to find out who did this to him....
God Bless

Anyone know who lived at the dead end of Miami Pkwy? I'd heard he was a "liquor man" (my grandmothers phrasing).

I remember hearing the guy who lived in the "Noel" house on Miami Pkwy. was killed cuz he wouldn't pay protection money. I think he owned Schulkers (sp?) or some pharmacy.

Hi, Debra,

Callie was my great aunt...my grandpa's sister. I was very young when your dad died and barely remember him, but my parents were part of the "scene" in Newport. We even lived in one of Sammy & Callie's rentals after our own house mysteriously went up in flames. I do remember your sister Belinda a bit but I'm am closer to Callie's son's age. Take care.

I have always heard rumors that the bail bondsman Bill Shweinefuss was a suspect (and business partner) of Sammy Eisner. He may have been a suspect, but he was never charged so it remains unsolved. The ky State Police website on cold cases lists Sam Eisner as 'having known ties to the underworld'.
My parents were across the street (or down the street) in the Pink P*ssy Cat when it happened. I remember that time very well.

Where can I find literature and pictures of Sin City Newport? Any help on this? I am very intrigued and want to research for person reasons. Does anyone know about the shooting at the green derby over..lets say...30 to 40 yrs ago? This man that was murdered in the 70s-Do you think that there are records in the city hall or public records and/or newspaper clippings in the library that I can have access too?

I was told about a book coming out next month called "Newport:The Sin City Years". It is supposed to have old pics of Newport people and clubs. Check Amazon or the Barnes&Noble website.
Another book is Razzle Dazzle but it is out of print and hard to find.

You should read "The Syndicate Wife" by Hank Messer (I think that's the last name). It is a wonderfully detailed account of all of the "activity" that was going on in Newport in the 60's. The local libraries have several copies.

Thanks. This 'Sin City Years' book looks neat. I'll have to get one. I have 'Wicked Newport' but there is not many photos in it.'Razzle Dazzle' is hard to find & if you can find a copy online it is expensive to buy one!!!

Screw Andrews was very sick indeed, but he also started to develop Alzheimer's Disease--which made him talk about things and people that were supposed to remain secret. In his rapidly deteriorating condition he did not even realize that he was doing this! This worried the mob and they made the decision to silence the old man before he incriminated them all. That is why they murdered a sick old man.
