Anthony Zizzo was an American mobster and a reputed member of the Chicago Outfit.[1]

Zizzo disappeared after leaving his home on August 31, 2006; he was last seen outside a Melrose Park restaurant where his car was found after a missing person's report was made.[2] He is presumed murdered,[3][4] although the FBI is also considering the possibility he went into hiding.[2]

Theories on why Zizzo may have been targeted include fears he might testify against the Outfit as well as an ongoing feud with Capo Michael Sarno, whom he was supervising.[2][4][5]

At the time of his disappearance, law enforcement believed Zizzo was the underboss of the Chicago Outfit.[1]
