Colombo Capo "Jr. Lollipops" Carna Dies in Prison

Reputed Colombo capo Joseph "Junior Lollipops" Carna, a 30-year Mafia veteran, died of natural causes at a federal prison hospital while serving a six-month sentence for money laundering, according to officials on Friday. So reports the NY Daily News.

Carna, 71, was set to leave the Devens Medical Center in Massachusetts on Oct. 14, said a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

Carna supposedly was involved in the "Deep Throat Killings" of 1982, in which former nun Veronica Zuraw was killed by a stray bullet during a a planned hit outside her Gravesend home. The targets were the Perainos, family associates who were believed to be skimming from the Colombo bosses' shares of the profits from the triple-X film Deep Throat.

The targets of the hit were porn king Joseph Peraino — who was left paralyzed — and his son, Joseph Jr., who died.

Carna got his unusual nickname -- Junior Lollipops -- from his father, who owned an eatery called "Lolly's" in Brooklyn.

Back in March “Junior Lollipops’’ Carna was jailed for six months and ordered to pay the feds $300,000 for laundering money for mob gambling operations.

He’ll have to spend an additional six months under house arrest when he gets out of prison and pay a $3,000 fine, Brooklyn federal Judge Kiyo Matsumoto ruled back in March.

Carna has been affiliated with the Colombo family for more than 30 years and has a string of arrests dating to 1959.
