Federal investigators started searching the Ozone Park home of late mobster James “Jimmy the Gent” Burke Monday for “human remains and other evidence,” according to published reports.
Burke, who was famously portrayed by Robert DeNiro in the film “Goodfellas,” was allegedly behind the 1978 Lufthansa heist at JFK Airport, making off with almost $6 million in cash and jewels. It’s believed that Burke murdered several individuals connected to the crime.
Jimmy died in prison 17 years ago from cancer.
