Police may be on the brink of finally finding the remains of Judge Joseph Crater - and possibly solving the most enduring mystery in New York City history, investigators said Thursday.

The judge, known for his ties to the city's corrupt political machine known as Tamanny Hall, vanished in 1930.

With no real leads, cops closed the case, but now new evidence has emerged.

According to the New York Post, a Queens woman who died earlier this year left a note saying her husband, a city police officer and his brother killed Crater and buried him under the boardwalk in Coney Island.

Police told the paper they're looking into whether skeletal remains discovered under the boardwalk during the 1950s could belong to Crater.
