Cold case unsolved: Edward O’Hare murder

Edward J. O'Hare, the wealthy president of Sportsman's Park racetrack, was gunned down as he drove on Ogden Avenue near Western Avenue on Nov. 8, 1939. He allegedly had cooperated with authorities against Capone in a bid to ensure his son would be admitted to the Naval Academy. At the request of longtime Ald. Ed Burke, 14th, Chicago police agreed last year to take a look at the fatal shooting in light of the release of the book “Get Capone,” which contended Capone's family was behind the killing.
