Michael  Gorman, aka Red Fox or Foxy

Mugshot of McCart Street Gang leader, Michael "Foxy" Gorman, taken at the Ohio State Penitentiary in 1896. Foxy Gorman became a member of the Gang in the late 1880s and was its leader from 1892-1895, after the previous gang leader, Patrick Gorman, was sentenced to a term in the penitentiary for robbery. Perhaps the most colorful member of the gang, Foxy acquired his nickname because he had flaming red hair. In 1896, he too was taken off the streets when Common Pleas Judge Alfred Lamson sentenced him to 9 years in penitentiary for robbery.
