Tony Zerilli was in jail when Hoffa went missing
A man who denies being a mob boss, but admits to knowing everything that Detroit mafia did, is coming forward with a tip on Jimmy Hoffa's burial location.Tony Zerilli recently got out of jail, where he served time for a conspiracy and extortion charge. He was also in jail in '75, when Hoffa disappeared off the face of the earth.
He is telling police and reporters a lot of new details about what happened to Hoffa after he left a local restaurant, the night he went missing.
Zerilli is convinced that his body is just a few feet away from said restaurant, buried in a field in Oakland County.
“The master plan was, as I understood, they were going to put him in a shallow grave here, and they were going to take him from here to Rogers City, upstate, where there was a hunting lodge. [...] That just fell through," Zerilli describes, according to USA Today.
As I noted yesterday, officials claim that they questioned him, as he was an underboss in an important Detroit mob family, at the time.
Zerilli gains credibility by being backed up by the FBI; however, he insists he had nothing to do with the mafia, which prompts a question on how he gathered information about Hoffa's death.
In addition to that, he has a book on the Hoffa case coming out. Do you believe he actually knows the location, or do you think that this is just a publicity stunt? Leave your response in the comment section.
