A rare Nevada native, Wendy Mazaros spent her early years “playing out in the desert with my brothers, chasing lizards, catching snakes, and digging caves”. At fifteen, she fell into the arms of Ted Binion, heir-apparent of the Binion’s Horseshoe Club family. Binion passed her off to Tom Hanley; a man she would marry, and later learn was a hitman for the mob. Today, Wendy makes her home in the Las Vegas suburbs, and enjoys a wide circle of family and friends.
George Knapp was joined by Wendy Mazaros and journalist Joe Schoenmann for a discussion on Mazaros' life with Tom and Gramby Hanley, a Las Vegas father and son hitman team who performed murders-for-hire on behalf of mobsters, casino owners, labor unions, and others.
