He came to public notice during the 1970s during investigations into the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, as he was one of two Mafia members – the other being Anthony Provenzano – that Hoffa was to meet the day he disappeared. Giacalone was later jailed for ten years in 1976 for income tax fraud at the Federal Correctional Institution in Oxford, Wisconsin.
