"In the early 1930s, gangster and mob lord Al Capone purchased the island for its vast seclusion. The now heavily populated area was once mainly unsettled and the island provided the perfect setting for him to carry about his activities in secrecy. Legend has it that in 1934 Capone fell in love with Carmilla Cantella - a leading lady in the Italian opera - while she toured the Jackson Opera House just outside of Ft. Lauderdale. Enamored by her beauty, he ordered his men to kidnap her and it is believed she was held on the island for some time."
