Daniel 'Dirty Danny' Mongelli wins Covid-19 lottery

After being denied for release Daniel 'Dirty Danny' Mongelli won the lottery and caught Covid-19 in jail. He was sprung from a federal prison by the same judge this week.
Mongelli was an acting captain of the Bonannos when family associate Louis Tuzzio was whacked in an intra-family hit in 1990. He was part of the conspiracy to murder Tuzzio.
Mongelli lured Tuzzio to his death by leading him to believe he was going to a meeting where he might become made. “I was there when Louis Tuzzio was murdered and I knew he was going to be murdered,” said Mongelli when he pleaded guilty. Mongelli served as lookout for the Brooklyn hit.

Acting Bonanno boss Anthony Spero ordered Tuzzio killed to appease John Gotti. He died in 2008. Mongelli, now 54, recently underwent radiation treatment for prostate cancer.
