GROSSE POINTE PARK (WKZO) -- Long-time Detroit mob leader Jack Tocco is dead at the age of 87.

According to his obituary on the website for Bagnasco and Calcaterra Funeral Homes, Tocco's funeral will be Friday at St. Clare of Montefalco Catholic Church in Grosse Pointe Park. He was convicted on racketeering and conspiracy charges in 1998 and headed up the Mafia in Detroit for three decades.

The FBI says Tocco ran the Detroit Mafia when Jimmy Hoffa vanished in 1975.
