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.
