Anthony "Tony" Joseph Tocco, the former consigliere for the Detroit Mafia and brother of once-reputed boss Jack Tocco, died on Friday of natural causes as reported by Christy Strawser for WWJ:
He was charged in 1996, along with 16 other members of what's known as "The Detroit Partnership" in a federal lawsuit with racketeering and other allegations. Among those indicted were his brother Jack Tocco, who was co-owner of the Hazel Park Racetrack at the time, plus underboss Anthony Joseph Zerilli. Tony Tocco was the only one who was aquitted in the case that FBI agents at the time said "drove a stake through the heart of La Cosa Nostra in Detroit."
