Goodfellas' Victim Knew He Was Going To Be Whacked, Son Says

Selim Algar is covering the Vincent Asaro/Goodfellas trial for the New York Post.
Paul Katz knew he was in trouble. “If I’m not back in two hours, call the cops,” the mob associate told his wife before he headed out the door the night of Dec. 6, 1969.
He’d never be seen again.
On Tuesday, Katz’s son Lawrence, who was 5 years old at the time, told jurors in the Brooklyn federal court trial of accused Lufthansa heist plannerVincent Asaro, that his dad had a bad feeling about his meeting with the Bonanno wiseguy that night.
Prosecutors say Katz owned a warehouse that served as a stash house for stolen goods hijacked by Asaro and Lucchese associate James “Jimmy the Gent” Burke, who was famously played by Robert De Niro in the film “Goodfellas.”
