Before his internment at Rolling Hills Memorial Park in Richmond, California, his eight-mile processional was viewed by over 8,000 mourners. This lavish display is thought to have provided inspiration for the films Juice (1992) and New Jack City (1991).
Authorities hoped that Mitchell's incarceration and demise would reduce-or flat-out eradicate-heroin in the Bay Area. Instead, in the absence of Mitchell's iron grip and pricing structure, drug prices plummeted,
making them even more accessible. As a result, addiction grew and drug-related violence increased significantly. Those studying the phenomenon refer to it as the "Felix Mitchell Paradox."
