Questions are now being asked about who these men were and how they where connected to the mob. I have seen letters that Jimmy sent to Tony, but I can't show them to you. I asked Andretta what he was asked during the grand jury hearing. As I squirmed momentarily, Briguglio pressed a button that opened the garage door. One struck him in the chest. His stepson Jack Goldsmith has written extensively about his quest to find answers in the case and concluded that Chuckie was innocent.

Actor Jake Hoffman, who plays him in The Irishman, has previously starred in Wolf of Wall Street. However, based on Picardo's information, government prosecutors subpoenaed Briguglio and his alleged coconspirators to appear before a federal grand jury in Detroit on December 4, 1975. Briguglio supposedly hit Castellito twice in the head with a lead-filled rubber hose and then helped another man strangle him with a rope, according to The New York Times. Provenzano served a prison Sentence and was barred from union office for five years because of a 1963 conviction for extortion. During the spring of 1975, Bufalino had been running New York's Vito Genovese Mafia family on an interim basis; Provenzano was a Genovese caporegime.

He died in 1988 of a heart attack at age 71 in a hospital near a prison in Lompoc, California. Prosecutors alleged Provenzano paid to have the rival killed. Some experts believe Briguglio, not Frank Sheeran, killed Hoffa. The fluid also leaked in the car, so he went and got a car wash. Other witnesses saw no such thing. Though Briguglio did not make himself available to journalists, one who interviewed him face-to-face is Dan Moldea, an investigative reporter who has covered the Hoffa mystery for decades and recently participated in a forum at The Mob Museum on the subject.

Asking for Briguglio and being directed into a waiting room filled with bowling and softball trophies, I nervously skimmed magazines months out of date. Soon after my arrival, I called the union headquarters of Provenzano's Local 560 in Union City and asked to speak with the 48-year old Salvatore Briguglio. A 1994 article in the Sydney Morning Herald explained how a new book had alleged that Salerno ordered the execution after Hoffa punched Provenzano over an argument about whether Hoffa would again control the union after getting out of jail. Violet Holmes assisted him in cutting up the fish. Provenzano became employed by Local 560 in , as a business agent between 1948 and 1958, as the president between 1958 and May 1966, and as secretary treasurer between November 24, 1975 and June 1978.
