BRINK’S Mat robber Micky McAvoy left £150,000 in his will – after his loot was stolen in prison.
Nicknamed “The Nutter,” he was part of the criminal gang that stole £26 million worth of gold bars, diamonds and cash in a single raid.
The 1983 raid on a warehouse at Heathrow Airport was dubbed the “crime of the century”.
His share was never reclaimed.
McAvoy died last December aged 71 at home in Bromley, Kent, where he lived with his wife Kathy before she died.
He was one of Britain’s most prolific and violent armed robbers and should have lived with his share of the Brink’s Mat gold.
But it disappeared while he served 16 years in prison for the raid.
Police suspected that McAvoy had ordered the contract killing of Brian Perry to take care of his part.
McAvoy was released in 2000.
ThePerry was shot dead in front of his office last year.
Police questioned McAvoy, but the murder remains unsolved.
In his will, McAvoy shared hisin thirds for his daughter Keeley and two of his friends.
The heist was made into the BBC drama The Gold this year.
