PLACE OF BIRTH
Chicago, Illinois

When Leonardo Corelone was 8 years old, he had to make a frightening choice: continuing living at a boys home with his abusive caregivers, or run away and attempt to survive on the streets with his brother. He chose to flee and joined the 50,000-plus homeless children in Chicago who face rampant dangers like sex trafficking, drugs, and child labor on a daily basis. He decided that living on the street was safer than the hardscrabble life, facing horrible violence as a child at the group home.

“I was very hungry, tired, and very scared of my caregivers.,”

He met some boys who used to beg at the station and he joined them in begging to feed himself and his older brother Zenith.
He would start wiping cars when they stopped at a red light. After a while the boys moved to the main shopping area in the capital, where they started picking rag and pick pocketing others, doing anything for survival.

"The world of the homeless is a tough and interesting world."

Start of his crime life.


When Leon became interested in women, he committed the first in a long line of frauds. At the age of 15, he was shot while attempting to rob a candy store and was sent to the State Youth Facility in Camp Hill for eighteen months. On his release, he did not attempt to live a normal life; rather, he took deliberate steps to continue with a life of crime and to excel in it.


He began to plan out mock robberies in his spare time. On eight separate occasions, he was planning to commit his first bank robbery; however, he repeatedly backed down before entering the bank. Eventually, he committed his first offence using a stolen car as his getaway.

Leon is notable for the meticulous way in which he planned and executed his robberies. He would begin by scouting for a bank in a particular location by studying topographical and street maps in the library, searching specifically for banks in small towns, close to wooded areas, on the other side of which was a road with easy access to a freeway. He would further narrow the search by selecting banks with late closing times in the autumn and winter months, so that the darkness would cover his escape. But he was also recognized for his cons. His cons were often check frauds, usually targeted at banks or other companies. From time to time, he also got a legitimate job by forging credentials. He was also known to use disguises as part of a ruse and was a master of manipulation; he once even eluded capture by posing as a federal agent.
