In one of the most brazen crimes of the 1990s, two masked men kidnapped Kevyn Wynn, daughter of Strip casino mogul Steve Wynn, from her Las Vegas condo. The high-profile case fell into the lap of federal prosecutor Tom O’Connell. Now retired, O’Connell will join the Museum in-person as he recounts the dramatic rescue of Wynn’s daughter and how investigators tracked down the perpetrators.
The Mob Museum will also provide a livestream of this presentation on its website.
