Henry Hill Dies at 69

Mobster turned government informant Henry Hill has died at the age of 69 after a long illness. Hill was part of New York’s Lucchese mafia family in New York from the 1960s until the 1980s. He then became an FBI informant, entered the witness-protection program, and testified against his former crime bosses. The 1986 book Wiseguys and the 1990 Martin Scorsese film Goodfellas were both based on his life.
