Rocco Sollecito was believed to have been part of committee that ran the local Mafia while Vito Rizzutto was imprisoned in the U.S.
More than three years after the murder in Laval of alleged mobster Rocco Sollecito, the Sûreté du Québec on Tuesday set up a command post near the site of the slaying and is urging members of the public with any knowledge of the incident to come forward.
Sollecito, believed to have been part of committee that ran the local Mafia while leader Vito Rizzutto was imprisoned in the United States, was shot to death at 8:30 a.m. on May 26, 2016, while at the wheel of his SUV and stopped at an intersection on St-Elzéar Blvd.
An SQ command post has been set up in the parking lot of a mall just a block south of the site of the killing. The provincial force has also made public several surveillance camera photos depicting two people in a black, racer-type motorcycle in an effort to identify the pair.
The command post is at 3535 Autoroute Jean-Noël-Lavoie-Ouest (Highway 440) in Laval.
