DETROIT, Mich. — Jack Tocco, a man who led Detroit’s mafia for some three decades, has died at the age of 87.

According to Fox 2 News in Detroit, Tocco has been called the longest-serving mob boss in history.  He was in charge back in 1975 when Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa disappeared.  Tocco was never charged in Hoffa’s disappearance, but he was named as a suspect.

In 1998 he was convicted on racketeering and conspiracy charges.
