“Bringing Down the Mob” next in community’s education series

Mob bosses, FBI agents, crime and casinos. Join retired FBI agent and author, William Ouseley, for Bringing Down the Mob – the latest installment in Aberdeen Village’s Just Ask lifelong learning series at 11:30 a.m. Oct. 3 at the campus, 17500 W 119th Street in Olathe.

William Ouseley spent more than 20 years working against the Civella crime family with the organized crime squad in the FBI’s Kansas City Field Office. He would eventually serve as supervisor on the Operation Strawman case. This case, popularized by the 1995 film Casino, involved the Mob infiltration of the Nevada gaming industry, which resulted in the illegal “skimming” of millions of dollars from a number of Las Vegas casinos.

You’ll learn all about the Operation Strawman case and its Kansas City connection while you enjoy a delicious, complimentary lunch. Each guest will also receive a free signed copy of Ouseley’s book, Mobsters in our Midst.

Bringing Down the Mob with William Ouseley is part of Aberdeen Village’s Just Ask series, a free, ongoing lifelong learning program featuring information from local, regional and national experts on topics of interest to older adults and their families.

Reservations are required and seating is extremely limited. RSVP by no later than Thursday, September 26 to Sean Roark at 913-890-6455 or
