Mobster Bugsy Benjamin Siegel born as Benjamin Siegelbaum is riddled with bullets by persons unknown at the age of 41 in Beverly Hills, California, United States.


Although descriptions said that Siegel was shot in the eye, he was actually hit twice on the right side of his head. The death scene and postmortem photographs show that one shot penetrated his right cheek and exited through the left side of his neck; the other struck the right bridge of his nose where it met the right eye socket. The pressure created by the bullet passing through Siegel's skull blew his left eye out of its socket. Siegel was hit by several other bullets including shots through his lungs.
