The St. Louis crime family is an Italian American Mafia family based in St. Louis, Missourimarker which thrived during Prohibition.

Giordano faction

Johnny Vitale was the first boss of the St. Louis mob. He was born in the Little Sicily section of Chicago, Illinoismarker. After Vitale retired, Kansas City Mob boss Rafael Caleca chose Anthony Giordano to be the boss of the St. Louis family. Giordano succeeded Vitale in a loud and noisy fashion. When a St. Louis reporter asked Giordano about his Mob connections Girodano went crazy and hit the reporter in the head with a bar stool and walked out. The Giordanos had strong ties with the much more powerful Licavoli Mob of Kansas City. The Giordanos were mainly active from 1945 to the late 1970s. In 1982 Matthew "Mike" Trupiano took over the family. He died in 1997. Currently, the St. Louis Mob family has gone back to what made the mob strong. They've stayed under the raidar of both local and federal authorities, although they are simply a small-time crew engaging in traditional Mafia enterprises. The St. Louis family has an estimated 20 members. The family's influence is primarily in the South St. Louis City and County sections of the greater St. Louis area. However, they also have great influences in East St. Louis and Western Illinois. Anthony "Nino" Parrino is alleged the current boss of St. Louis' Italian Organized Crime faction.
