An often consequence of the mob life is a prison death.
Colombo capo Pasquale Amato died at 80 from brain cancer last week in a Florida prison while serving a life term as reported by Phillip Messing from the New York Post: "Amato . . . was convicted after a jury trial in January 1992 for loansharking, weapons possession and the Nov. 13, 1989 murder of Colombo member Thomas Ocera, who was garrotted and buried in Forest Park, Queens."
Amato had aligned with Vic Orena during a pissing match with Carmine Persico which left bodies all over NYC.
