Laundry Chain Operator
In Spring 1925, Mickey moved to Moon Lake, Pennsylvania and built his cabin there near the woods, along with his own fake cemetery and private speakeasy. On January 29, 1932, he was arrested for tax evasion and was sentenced to eight years in prison on April 29, 1933. His four guard dogs, Xander, Iggy, Vitus and Lucy, died the night he was arrested.
He died of liver failure in the federal penitentiary at Leavenworth, Kansas on February 12, 1941, at the age of 52. He was just two months short of his release.
Mickey had William Akers and the rest of his gang construct graves for his dogs right outside where his own tomb would be. Mickey loved his dogs so much that a lot of the puzzles he designed in order to find the Hole-in-the-Floor gold involved them.
Mickey's girlfriend was Vivian Whitmore for five years. Vivian said that he was a very considerate man and even kept Birch Beer on tap in the speakeasy for her. A federal agent named Waldo Mathias was always trying to find a way to arrest Mickey.
