What happened to Goodtime Joe?

The last guy to call himself Goodtimes didn’t turn out so well. Was just doing some reading over the weekend about strange disappearances (because, um, that’s the type of thing I do on the weekends.) And came across Goodtime Joe Crater. Crater disappeared in New York in 1930 after stumbling out of a bar with his mistress, who then vanished herself after talking to the cops. “Pulling a Crater” went into the common lexicon for disappearing without a trace, and the Golden Girls even used his name as a joke once. The story came back into the headlines a couple of years ago when his apparent killer was found. Pretty interesting stuff.
