Man who helped dump body of reputed mob scion found dead in NYC

A man who helped dump the body of a reputed mob scion allegedly murdered by the ex-con’s identical twin was found dead Friday of an apparent drug overdose, The Post has learned.

Vincent Iacono was found unconscious in a Brooklyn bathroom just before 11 a.m. with a needle and fanny pack filled with drugs, according to police sources. The NYPD confirmed his death, which was a day before his 40th birthday.

Iacono had been working as a caretaker for a person at the apartment where his body was found in Canarsie.

He had been convicted of tampering with physical evidence in the murder of Carmine Carini, Jr., the son of a Gambino crime-family associate with the same name, in August 2017.

Iacono did 15 months behind bars for the crime before being paroled July 28, 2020, according to sources and prison records.

Twin brothers Louie and Vincent Iacono were arrested and charged with the mob style murder of Carmine Carini Jr. -- whose father is a reputed mobster.

His twin, Louie, is accused of bashing Carini Jr.’s head in with a hammer over a drug dispute, with the siblings then allegedly using duct tape to wrap the body in a blue tarp and attaching cinderblocks to his legs before tossing him in Jamaica Bay. The body washed up days later with the tide.

The twins went on the run, but cops eventually caught them in Indiana.

The brother’s murder case is still pending, court records show.
