Henry Hill

Henry Hill Henry Hill was born on June 11, 1943. He is a former American mobster, Lucchese crime family associate.

Biography and Career

Henry Hill was born in a poor working class family in East New York, Brooklyn. His father, Henry Hill, Sr., was an Irish American electrician, and his mother, Carmella Hill, was an Italian American. Henry and his seven siblings lived in a small house.

Henry Hill's first arrest came when he attempted to use a stolen credit card to buy tires at a Texaco gas station. Refusing to say anything to the police, he earned the respect of Lucchese Family associate Jimmy Burke, who saw great potential in young Henry.

In 1978, Hill was paroled after serving six years of a ten-year prison sentence for extortion. Hill began wholesaling marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and quaaludes, earning enormous amounts of money. After the murders of several of his friends by Burke, following the Lufthansa Heist, and the disappearance of his close friend Tommy DeSimone, who Hill believed, had been delivered by Vario into the hands of and murdered by the Gambino crime family for killing two made members without permission, he became increasingly paranoid.

On April 27, 1980, Hill was arrested on a narcotics trafficking charge, bonded out of jail, and, shortly afterwards, was re-arrested as a material witness in the Lufthansa robbery. He became convinced that his former associates planned to have him killed. This was confirmed by a surveillance tape played to Hill by federal investigators, in which Burke tells Vario of their need to have Hill whacked.

Hill chose to become an informant to avoid a possible execution by the Mafia or going to prison for his crimes; his testimony led to 50 convictions. So in 1980, Hill, his wife Karen, and their two children entered the U.S. Marshals' Witness Protection Program, changed their names, and moved to undisclosed locations in Omaha, Nebraska, then Independence, Kentucky and eventually Washington.

Hill worked for a time as a chef at an Italian restaurant. In 2007, Hill opened another restaurant, Wiseguys, in West Haven, Connecticut.
