When Harry “Pittsburgh Phil” Strauss, a prolific contract killer for Murder, Inc., was in prison he went crazy. He stopped bathing and grooming. He gripped the bars of his cage and screamed all day and night. He wasn’t the most popular inmate. He chewed on things…his cell bars, his lawyer’s briefcase…If he was looking for an insanity plea, it backfired. By acting like an animal, he became that much easier to convict.
