FBI Resumes Hunt For Jimmy Hoffa’s Body Near Detroit

By

FBI agents returned to an overgrown field in suburban Detroit on Tuesday to search for the remains of former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa, who disappeared nearly 38 years ago and is thought to have been murdered by members of organized crime.

FBI agents have been digging in search of the remains since Monday, when a backhoe was driven onto the field in Oakland County, about 20 miles north of the Machus Red Fox restaurant, where Hoffa was last seen alive.

The search resumed at 8 a.m. EDT on Tuesday. The FBI brought in forensic anthropologists from Michigan State University and a dog from Michigan state police to help search a half-acre of the site, according to a person close to the investigation who asked not to be identified.

The search for Hoffa, who was 62 when he disappeared in 1975, has spawned many theories about his final resting place, ranging from under an end zone in Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, to the General Motors Co headquarters in downtown Detroit to the Everglades in Florida.
