    Author Nathan Thompson has released 'The Murder of Policy King Ted Roe, 57 Years to the Day!' It's a Special 7-page Commemorative eRelease available for FREE DOWNLOAD at www.policykings.com.

    Ted Roe rose to infamy in the 1930s,40s and 50s as the head of Chicago's legendary Policy/Numbers Racket. Roe was murdered for control of that illegal business enterprise by Mob hitmen in front of his Bronzeville home on Tuesday night August 4, 1952. The Policy game financed banks, insurance companies, Provident Hospital, Burr Oak Cemetery, the Negro Baseball Leagues and more. In 1975, Illinois State Representatives Harold Washington, Lewis Caldwell and Ike Sims, and Chicago City Council members including Cliff Kelley, waged an unsuccesful battle to legalize the Policy game and use the revenues to fund public education. To date, Ted Roe's murder remains a cold case.
