The search is renewed
One of the great unsolved mysteries of the 20th century is back in the news.
Thirty-seven years after driving off to a restaurant and never being seen again, Jimmy Hoffa is again the subject of a police search. Hoffa, the longtime Teamsters Union boss who was convicted of corruption charges and later pardoned by President Nixon, went to meet two associates with ties to organized crime on July 30, 1975. He called his wife and told her he was stood up – then disappeared.
Over the years countless rumors have surfaced on exactly what happened to his body. Many of them suggested he was buried in a public place, with the story often involving being buried in concrete. He was buried under the New Jersey Meadowlands. No, he was buried at a Milford, Mich., farm. No, he was buried at a Detroit lumber yard.
Today, police plan to dig up a driveway in the Detroit suburb of Roseville after receiving a tip and, using ground radar, finding an anomaly under the driveway. But Hoffas daughter, Barbara Crancer, is not optimistic.
After so many false turns, Ill be surprised if anything comes of it, she told the Detroit Free Press. I dont think the case will ever be solved.
