Ten years after the mysterious disappearance of Chicago mob boss Anthony Zizzo, whose car was found empty near a Melrose Park restaurant in 2006, the FBI are still trying to solve the riddle.
According to a portion of an Aug. 31 ABC 7 I-Team investigation, Zizzo, who lived in Westmont at the time, had reportedly told his wife he was going into Chicago for a “lunch meeting.”
“Zizzo is said to have a falling out with mob boss Michael ‘Fat Boy’ Sarno concerning illegal video poker machines,” the report notes.
“‘As they often do, they were going to sit down and smooth this out. But no – that’s your death sentence,’ Binder said.”
No one was ever been charged with a crime and no body was ever discovered. Still, the FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information into the case. Read the full ABC 7 I-Team investigative report here. VFP
