Soldier in the Kansas City crime family

Joseph Lascoula was born in Termia, Palermo, Sicily. His first recorded
arrest in Kansas City was in 1919 for bootlegging. His forays into crime
involved fencing of stolen goods and drug trafficking. He also operated
a number of nightclubs on behalf of the synidcate. He and his younger
brother Mike (see November 2) were trusted members of the Civella
brothers' inner circle. (Civella profiles coming soon.) During his heyday,
Lascoula was described as feared and respected.
