OAKLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -- Authorities arrived at a northern Oakland Co. field Monday morning in hopes of discovering the remains of Jimmy Hoffa.

An FBI spokesman says agents are executing a sealed search warrant in the area of Buell and Adams in northern Oakland Township. Officials wouldn't provide any further details.

Monday's dig comes after aging mobster Tony Zerilli said earlier this year that Hoffa's body was buried in a field about 20 miles north of the restaurant where he was last seen in July 1975.

Zerilli says Hoffa was buried in a shallow grave in the area of Buell and Adams and the plan was to move the body at another time. But Hoffa's remains were never moved from the first spot where they were buried, he said.

"Once he was buried here, he was buried and they let it go," Zerilli said.

FOX 2's Roop Raj says Zerilli and his attorney planned to arrive on the scene Monday afternoon.

"I'm shocked," said Sharon McKay, who lives in the area. "I just don't think it's for real."

Former U.S. Attorney Keith Corbett, who prosecuted organized crime in Detroit for 20 years, said Detroit's Mafia families are related in addition to their sworn bonds. That's one reason the mystery of what happened to Hoffa has gone unsolved, he said.

"Organized crime was involved in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa," Corbett said.

Hoffa said he was going to meet a suspected member of the Detroit Mafia and a Teamster boss from New Jersey at a restaurant in suburban Detroit when he disappeared in July 1975. Hoffa, who was 62 at the time, was never seen again and was declared legally dead in 1982.

"It's my fondest hope that we can give that closure, not just to the Hoffa family, but also to the community," said Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard.

If I were a betting man I'd bet the body is not there.

This is a mystery that is never going to be solved, it's surprising that the FBI keep spending money chasing their tails.

Unless his body had a belt, a ring, something metal, it's going to be hard to find, even if it is in that field.

That's not actually necessarily true. Ground penetrating radar can detect disturbances and irregularities in the underlying topology of layers of soil even decades after a body has been buried there.

We all know that he got abducted by aliens.  No wait, he's on a deserted island with DB Cooper and Elvis. :rofl:

I always figured he was buried in 10 tons of concrete in some building's foundation somewhere.

why are they always in "a shallow grave"? why doesn't someone make a deep grave if they don't want them to be discovered?

^ It is hard to dig 6 feet down -- especially if the ground is rocky. :laugh:

 

Plus, murder tends to rattle people's nerves -- they don't want to spend a lot of time on disposal.

but if this was a mob hit, why wouldn't they "take care of the waste" better? like in a barrel of acid or something... you know something the mob could get pretty easily through some of their "associates"? or even a backhoe...
