Frank Calabrese dies
Frank Calabrese dies, Calabrese Sr., 75, who was sentenced to life in prison in January 2009 after being convicted in Chicago's biggest mob trial in decades, died Tuesday in a North Carolina prison. The cause of death hasn't been determined, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The court held Calabrese responsible for more than a dozen killings. To pay the ordered restitution of more than $4 million to the families of his victims, the feds searched Calabrese's Oak Brook home in 2010 and found hundreds of thousands of stashed jewelry and cash behind a family portrait.

The items were auctioned this year.

In September, the writer of "Goodfellas" signed on to tell the story of Calabrese and his son, who turned away from mob life and secretly helped the feds record his father's conversations.
