Whatever happened to Eliot Ness after the trial of Al Capone?
Ness never successfully nabbed the Torso Murderer, who decapitated and de-limbed at least twelve unfortunate souls. He later decamped to Washington, D.C., where he headed the Diebold Safe Company before making an unsuccessful run for Cleveland mayor in 1947.
Ness eventually settled in Pennsylvania and worked for a private security firm. In 1957 he finished his memoir, "The Untouchables," and shortly thereafter died of a heart attack. Ness would later become the stuff of TV and movie lore, inspiring an Oscar-winning film and several television series.
