New York: A dead body found floating in waters off Brooklyn, N.Y., has been identified by police as that of Carmine Carini Jr. Authorities have said that he is the son of a known mobster.
The body of Carmine Carini Jr., 35, was found Saturday floating in the water near his Mill Basin home. The dead body of the man was wrapped in a blue tarp. It simply looked the handiwork of a gang. Now with the identification of the body it seems the suspicion was true.
While his body was packed in plastic, more surprising was the fact that there was a cinder block strung to his legs by an electrical cord.
Reports suggest that the man who also had multiple criminal charges against him and had several stints in prisons was hit on his head. Reports suggest that he died of blunt-force trauma to the head. Besides, he also had multiple stab wounds to the arms and legs. It was a very painful death that the 35-year old man endured.
Carini is reportedly the son of Carmine Carini, 58, a known mobster who spent as many as 23 years in prison for the 1983 killing.
NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce was quoted by the New York Post as saying, “The victim was a reputed mobster’s son…His father had the O-C [Organized Crime] ties, not him. Right now, we’re in an active investigation to see who was in his life at the time.”
The victim’s father, Carini Sr. has been convicted of several home invasion and breaking into a house pretending to be a policeman looking for drugs. He has come out after nine year stint in prison. After being jailed in 2008 he was released on 7 July 2017.
In the year 2003, the mobster’s son pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and sentenced to five years in prison after committing 10 muggings in 61 minutes whilst threatening victims by putting a machete to their necks.
