Henry Hill, whose outrageous real-life tales of life in the mob became the inspiration for the movie Goodfellas, died yesterday at the age 69. TMZ first reported that he passed away in Los Angeles after a long, undisclosed illness. Hill first made a name for himself in crime circles as part of the crew that pulled off the infamous $5 million robbery (a record at the time) of the Lufthansa airline terminal at JFK Airport in 1979, and also played a role in a famous point-shaving scandal involving the Boston College basketball team. After getting busted for drug dealing two years later, Hill became an FBI informant, helping to send most of his former associates to prison.
