Buster from Chicago was a pseudonym used for a mobster and freelance hitman of the 1930s. He is alleged to have played a key role in the Castellammarese War (1929–1931) as the assassin of Giuseppe Morello and others. Some claim that Buster was gangster Sebastiano Domingo, while others charge that Buster is a character created by Joe Valachi to evade his responsibility for various killings. The identity of Buster as Sebastiano Domingo, and his role as a Castellammare War participant, was confirmed by Bill Bonanno in his 2011 book "The Last Testament of Bill Bonanno."
