The compound where gangster Al Capone is said to have plotted the St. Valentine's day massacre in 1929, is for sale for $8.5 million. The 10,000-square-foot mansion on Miami's exclusive Palm Island, was built in 1922 by Clarence Busch, of the Anheuser-Busch brewing family. Capone, who made a fortune from liquor during prohibition, bought it in 1928 for $40,000. When he died in 1947, the home remained in his family until the 1970s.
