DETROIT –- A tip from a dying man could finally be the missing clue in the mystery of what happened to Teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa, who vanished 37 years ago.

Investigators are searching the ground beneath a suburban Detroit driveway after a man told authorities he saw a body being put into the ground around the same time Hoffa disappeared. The man is said to be dying of cancer and was not identified by police.

After the tip was received by the Roseville Police Department, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality used ground penetrating radar on a 12-foot-by-12-foot patch beneath the driveway, said agency spokesman Brad Wurfel.

It found "that the earth had been disturbed at some point in time," Berlin said.

The environmental quality department on Friday will take soil samples that will be sent to a forensic anthropologist at Michigan State University to "have it tested for human decomposition," Berlin said.

Results are not expected until next week. Police also plan to dig at the home on Friday.

Roseville Police Chief James Berlin believes something may be buried there, but he isn't sure it is the body of Hoffa.

"We are not claiming it's Jimmy Hoffa, the timeline doesn't add up," Berlin said. "We're investigating a body that may be at the location."

Hoffa was last seen on July 30, 1975, outside a suburban Detroit restaurant where he was supposed to meet with a New Jersey Teamsters boss and a Detroit Mafia captain. His body has not been found despite a number of searches over the years.

I think the only people who know is the Mob, and they're not the type to squeal about things like this.

People in Detroit assume Hoffa went where many orher area mob hits went - to a sausage factory that used to operate in the city. You figure the rest.

Yep. As Sean Connery said in The Untouchables, "He's as dead as Julius Caesar."

No sign of remains in soil in new Detroit-area search for Hoffa

The samples taken Friday are expected to be tested Monday by forensic anthropologists at Michigan State University for traces of human decomposition. Wet soil and clay were found, but there was no visible sign of human remains, Roseville Police Chief James Berlin said.

A negative test Monday means police likely will rip down the yellow tape roping off the entrance to Szpunar's yard — Nothing to see here.

But if decomposition is found, authorities will dig up the driveway, whether it's Hoffa beneath it or not, according to Berlin.

He pulls a knife. You pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue! THAT'S the Chicago way!

Because I am a sarcastic *******. And I think the whole Hoffa thing has completely outlived its welcome.





But mostly because I am a sarcastic *******.

I am a member of the Teamsters and his son is the head of the union right now. But Jimmy Hoffa JR is only somewhat like his Dad. I think he is corrupt but he gives us crappy contracts and I think is in the companies pockets. At least his Dad got workers good wages etc and good contracts.
