Victor P. Spilotro (died January 1997) was the older brother of Chicago Outfit mobster Tony Spilotro and Outfit wannabe brother, Michael. It wasn't until the 1980s that Victor started to get public attention. In 1980, he was convicted of illegal gambling and tax fraud in connection with a bookmaking operation disguised as a race track messenger service. Spilotro was sentence to 18 months and was out in 13 months.

In 1986, Tony and Michael, were found buried in an Indianamarker cornfield. A year later, Victor was recognized as a "Made" member of the Chicago Outfit.

In 1987, Victor was tried on fraud and extortion charge, accused of accepting $40,000 in protection money between 1981 and 1984 from the National Credit Card Service, an illegal credit card company that processed payments made to prostitutes. The firm actually was set up by the Federal Bureau of Investigationmarker (FBI) in a probe of vice in suburban Chicago. Spilotro, fifty-two, was found guilty, but received a light sentence from a judge who commented, "It is a troublesome case. If your name wasn't Spilotro, you wouldn't be here." On July 17, 1987, Victor was sentenced to six months of work release and five years probation.

Spiltro died in January 1997, in a Wheeling, West Virginiamarker, health-care facility.
