    A New Hampshire auction house is adding a signed deposition by gangster Al Capone, a pistol and a love song about his wife to its "American Gangsters, Outlaws and Lawman" auction planned next month.

    The Jan. 24, 1925, deposition is part of a 50-page archive of police interviews, testimony and notes in the attempted murder of Capone's mentor, John Torrio. Bobby Livingston of RR Auction in Amherst estimated the file could bring in $100,000.

    When Chicago police asked if he'd tell them if he knew who shot Torrio, Capone said: "No, I value my life too much to tell if I did know."

    In her book, "Uncle Al Capone," Deirdre Capone tells tales, not only about her famous family, but her own journey carrying such a nefarious name.

    The Sept. 30 auction in Nashua also features guns retrieved post-mortem from outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow and a John Dillinger death mask.
