Russell Millin, who served as U.S. Attorney in western Missouri under President Kennedy in the 60s, and was known as “Mr. Clean”, died Monday of natural causes at age 88, the Kansas City Star reported.

The Star reported in 1976 that Millin prosecuted more “big name criminals,” including mobsters, than any other U.S. attorney up to that time.

“He was a real presence as a U.S. attorney,” nephew Steve Millin said, according to the Kansas City Star.

Millin served as U.S. Attorney from in 1961 to 1967.

He made unsuccessful bid the Democratic nomination of Missouri attorney general in 1968 and for the Democratic nomination to the Missouri Senate in 1976.

In recent times, he was part of an ad hoc coalition of former and current Missouri law enforcement officials that opposed the death penalty.
