Mobster Joey ‘The Clown’ Lombardo dies in jail

Chicago mob capo Joey “The Clown” Lombardo has died in prison at age 90. He was serving a life sentence after being convicted of murder and racketeering in the Operation Family Secrets trial in 2007. Operation Family Secrets took down mob boss James Marcello and decimated The Outfit.

Lombardo was among the best-known defendants in the case. The prosecution’s star witness was Nicholas Calabrese, a hit man who took the stand against his own brother to spell out the crimes, one by one. The jury heard explicit details about 18 unsolved killings, including the beating death and cornfield burial of Tony 'The Ant' Spilotro.
