Jack Tocco, the long-time boss of the Detroit Mafia which allegedly was created by his father William Tocco and his uncle Joseph Zerilli in the 1930s, has died at 87 as reported by John Wisely for the Detroit Free Press:
According to the FBI, Tocco was running the Detroit Mafia in July 1975 when Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa disappeared from the Machus Red Fox restaurant on Telegraph Road in Bloomfield Township. "He knew all the secrets and where the bodies were buried, including Hoffa's," said Dan Moldea, author of The Hoffa Wars. "Jack Tocco had to check off on this murder. It happened in his jurisdiction."
Tocco's brother and consigliere Anthony Joseph Tocco died in 2012.
