Frank the Dasher Abbandano was part of the enforcement team of a criminal organization called Murder Inc. Abbandano led an East New York gang as a youth and was sent to prison twice by his early twenties. Frank's specialty was killing with an ice pick and also a meat cleaver. He met Abe Kid Twist Reles while serving time at Elmira Reformatory in Elmira, New York. Little did Abbandano realize that Abe would seal his fate with testimony he gave concerning the 1937 murder of stoolie George Rudnick by Abbandano and Happy Malone. Murder Inc. controlled the garment industry in the 1930s. At the top of the organization was Louis Lepke Buchalter. Both Buchalter and Abbandano died in the electric chair at Ossining State Prison (Sing Sing).
