5 Arrests in 35yr Old Goodfellas Case

 

5 Arrests have been made in the Lufthansa job after 35 yrs.  This is the heist that was referenced in Goodfellas resulting in the deaths of most of the participants.

In the movie, Di Nero plays Jimmy Conway (Jimmy The Gent Burke in real life), who executes the biggest heist in US history.  Expecting to score $2 million, the haul is actually $6 million.

Rather than pay out the shares, Jimmy decides to whack most of the participants.

Here is the Wikipedia for Jimmy Burke:

Here are those murdered after the Lufthansa Heist.  These murders follow closely the deaths in the movie:

Our Tribute to James Gandolfini – The Mexican

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on June 19, 2013 by mobflix

Our Tribute to james Gandolfini begins with the Mexican.

Jerry Welbach (Brad Pitt) can’t catch a break. On one side, his mobster boss (Bob Balaban) demands that he travel to Mexico to retrieve a cursed antique gun, or suffer the consequences. On the other side, his girlfriend, Samantha (Julia Roberts), has given him an ultimatum to give up his criminal ways once and for all. Believing that he can only make things right with Samantha if he is alive, Jerry chooses to go after the gun. Finding the cursed piece of metal is easy, but getting it back across the border proves difficult, especially when Samantha is taken hostage by a gay hitman (James Gandolfini).
