‘Shacks’ is back! Or at least he will be Thursday

Reputed ex-Mafia boss Luigi “Baby Shacks” Manocchio’s long, strange trip through the federal prison system is finally bringing him back to Rhode Island this week.

So reports Tim White in a story he just broke on WPRI.com:

The reputed former boss of New England’s Patriarca crime family will be back on Rhode Island soil this Thursday, the Target 12 Investigators have learned.

Luigi “Baby Shacks” Manocchio has been in federal custody since his Jan. 19 arrest in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. As Target 12 first reported, he was later flown from Miami to a federal prison in Oklahoma City, where he has been awaiting the next leg of his trip back the Northeast.

Manocchio, 83, will be flown from Oklahoma to New York on Wednesday. He will be housed at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn for one day, then driven with several other inmates to the Wyatt Detention Center in Central Falls, according to Steven O’Donnell, U.S. Marshal for Rhode Island.
