Mobster Henry Hill, who went from the heights of organized crime to FBI informant whose life story, was documented in the book “Wiseguy” which led to Martin Scorsese’s 1990 classic “GOODFELLAS” has died at the age of 69.
Hill died at a Los Angeles hospital of an undisclosed illness on Tuesday, Nate Caserta, the son of Hill’s fiancé Lisa Schinelli Casterta, confirmed.
“[His] heart just stopped. He had been sick for a long time,” Nate Caserta told ABC News.
“I will never be the same. I lost someone I cared about a lot . Someone who loved my family and helped me a lot with life,” Nate Caserta wrote in a post on Facebook. “You truly lived a life no one could live. You touched so many peoples lifes. Your spirit lives forever with me.”
