Chicago Crime Commission Brings Back 'Most Wanted' List: Chicago's Most Famous Public Enemies (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Crime Commission has resurrected a list of bad guys that once included the likes of Al Capone in the hopes it will help track down fugitives.

That new list (download it here) includes reputed street gang members accused of murder and a former police officer accused of shaking down drug dealers. The nonprofit group's Most Wanted list has nine men and one woman.

The commission's executive vice president, Arthur Bilek, says the group decided to post a Most Wanted list about 70 years after it discontinued its "Public Enemies" list out of concern for violence related to gangs and drugs.

The list of 10 fugitives differs from the original list that included Capone, who, Bilek says, wasn't a fugitive and wasn't even charged with a crime at the time.
