Greenbaum had become so wealthy from his mob connections in Phoenix that he was able to purchase an expensive mansion and fly frequently to Las Vegas for gambling trips at the Flamingo. He amassed significant winnings there.
Police immediately suspected Mob vengeance when they discovered Gus and Bess’ bodies were bound, although there was no sign of forced entry; rather, footprints left by cigarette ashes suggested the killers had simply laid in wait for their arrival at home.
Rosselli later told a reporter that Meyer Lansky, of Los Angeles Mobster fame, sent Greenbaum to Phoenix to run his West Coast race wire racket; Lansky perceived him as an undesirable investment and wanted him eliminated, just like Bugsy Siegel was prior to mismanaging the Flamingo Casino.
