Who opened Al Capone's vault in a 1986 live TV event?
During a two-hour live television special on April 21, 1986, Geraldo Rivera opened a secret vault in the Lexington Hotel that was once owned by Al Capone. The live event was hyped as potentially revealing great riches or dead bodies on live television. This included the presence of a medical examiner should bodies be found, and agents from the Internal Revenue Service to collect any of Capone's money that might be discovered. When the vault was finally opened, the only things found inside were dirt and several empty bottles. Geraldo admitted defeat and voiced his disappointment to the 30 million viewers that tuned in to watch the event.
