Carmine Carini Jr. (the last photo of him is with his incarcerated father.)
In a report from the New York Times, the corpse found in cement overshoes in the waters off Brooklyn over the weekend has been identified as a member of a notorious local mob family, police said Tuesday.
The body of Carmine Carini Jr., 35, was found Saturday near East 58th Street and Avenue U near his residence in Mill Basin — with a cinder block bound to his legs with an electrical cord and his body wrapped in a blue tarp sealed with duct tape.
“It was right out of ‘GoodFellas,’ ” a law enforcement source said.
NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said at a press conference Tuesday, “The victim was a reputed mobster’s son. His father had the OC [organized crime] ties, not him. Right now, we’re in an active investigation to see who was in his life at the time.”
Carini died from blunt-force trauma to the head but had also been stabbed, police sources said. He was identified through fingerprints.
Carini’s dad — also named Carmine — is an associate of the Colombo crime family, a police source said.
