On our side while doing our research, a new hypothesis appeared to us as evidence concerning this long awaited revelation. Indeed, if we look a little more closely at the historical facts of that period, a name stands out very clearly. It is about the famous gangster Charles Luciano, nicknamed the “Charles the Lucky”. And for good reason ! Historically, he was the first to smuggle heroin into the United States. At that time, the pair of Charles Luciano and Meyer Lansky reigned over organized crime across the entire American continent. In view of this information, it is quite possible that Gina Gray is also part of Charles Luciano’s family as a niece or cousin.
