Mob boss Carmine 'The Snake' Persico dies while serving 139-year prison sentence

Source: LA Times

The longtime boss of the infamous Colombo crime family, Carmine "The Snake" Persico, has died at age 85 while serving a 139-year prison sentence.

Persico died Thursday at the Duke University Medical Center, said his attorney, Benson Weintraub. He had been serving what was effectively a life sentence at a federal prison in Butner, N.C.

Persico was among eight defendants convicted in a 1986 prosecution called the "Commission Trial" that was overseen by then-U.S. Atty. Rudolph W. Giuliani. At the time, it was the biggest legal assault on the heads of the Mafia's five families. Persico was convicted of racketeering and murder.

The son of a law firm stenographer and a stay-at-home mother, Persico was a high school dropout who was part of a local street gang.

11. "Skinny". He's so tall, he's so thin, he's so fit.

Or, "Methusela". He's so healthy, he'll live to be 800.
