Former wiseguy turned mob turncoat Henry Hill (who was portrayed by Ray Liotta in Good Fellas) died after a reported heart attack, according to his girlfriend. He at least managed to outlive the mobsters he had helped send up the river.

He was still doing hard drugs in his 60s like when he was much younger as portrayed in the Goodfellas movie. Got arrested in 2005 for cocaine and meth.

I seem to recall that he also got arrested in the late 90's or around Y2K for running an Ecstasy selling ring.

He actually died young since he technically wasn't an "old man" yet which starts at age 70.

I guess he admitted to killing several people on the Howard Stern show even though the movie pretended like he didn't.

Really? His Wikipedia entry says he denied killing anyone. Then again, I've always found that claim of his dubious, considering who his friends and associates were.

Near the bottom of his wikipedia page it says:

In reference to his many victims, Hill, who claimed that he has never killed anyone (though he did admit on The Howard Stern Show to being ordered by Burke to kill three people, which he says he did comply with), stated in an interview in March 2008 with BBC's Heather Alexander: "I don't give a heck what those people think; I'm doing the right thing now."
