Yeah, he sounds like one of those hoodlum characters from the old black and white gangster films.
A drunken 'heavy', a bouncer and former fighter, a bit punch-drunk, a bit plain old drunk, a bit crazy - a cop's nightmare.
'Found dead' in a starwell - i wouldn't be at all surprised if he was bumped off. A guy like that would have enemies - in law enforcement or elsewhere in the underworld.
We will never know for sure.
Tough tough guy. Must have been quite a character.
