Considered the hardest man in London, Jimmy Moody was heavily involved in numerous criminal enterprises beginning as an enforcer for the Richardson Gang, whilst also working on behalf of their bitter rivals the Kray Twins. He was eventually placed at the top of Scotland Yard's Most Wanted List after helping an IRA member escape from prison in 1980. Moody then moved to Ireland and became involved with the Provisional IRA, allegedly committing murders on behalf of the terror group. He is also suspected of involvement in numerous unsolved murders and upon his returned to London in the late 1980's he had no shortage of enemies. His past would eventually catch up with him in June 1993, when he was shot dead by a lone gunman at the Royal Hotel in Hackney.
