Runs McGoo was the "food scientist" for Sal Monella's gang. He had stringy, light-colored hair

McGoo was responsible for processing the tainted food that Monella had acquired cheaply into a form that would be palatable. This sometimes involved adding otherwise-inedible ingredients.

McGoo was not present when Monella's base of operations was raided by the FBI and a rival gang. His fate and whereabouts are unknown.
