Federal investigators have found possible human remains at the Ozone Park home of late mobster James “Jimmy the Gent” Burke, according to an FBI spokesperson.
Officials began searching the home Monday in regards to an ongoing investigation.
According to reports, the search is likely not related to the Lufthansa heist at JFK Airport which Burke was allegedly behind.
During the 1978 theft, the perpetrators made off with almost $6 million in cash and jewels.
Burke, who was famously portrayed by Robert DeNiro in the film “Goodfellas,” is believed to have murdered several individuals connected to the airport heist.
He died from cancer in prison 17 years ago, and the home, located at 81-48 102nd Road, is now reportedly owned by one of his daughters.
