Is Jimmy Hoffa buried under the driveway of a Detroit area home?
Authorities don’t believe so, but they also possess enough intrigue and curiosity to dig up the driveway based on the account of a witness who has remained silent since 1975. On July 30, 1975, Jimmy Hoffa, the former teamster boss who dabbled in organized crime, disappeared from the parking lot of a Bloomfield Township restaurant. His body has never been found. And some seven years after his disappearance, he was legally declared deceased.
The witness who has offered a report to Roseville, Michigan police, stated that he saw a body wrapped in a plastic bag being buried in a construction zone that was scheduled to have concrete poured over it. Police don’t believe the timeline calculates for any such buried individual to be Jimmy Hoffa, but they do feel that the eye witness account is “credible.”
The truth about the witness…he does believe it was Jimmy Hoffa, and this confession basically comes as he nears death due to cancer. He never offered his account because he was terrified of ending up just like Jimmy Hoffa.
Police also said that if they find nothing upon excavating, they won’t be surprised. And no–to be official, they didn’t rule out the possibility of being Jimmy Hoffa, but apparently, it’s quite improbable. That probably means that there’s a good chance that it’s him–they just don’t want more of a media circus than there already is. Police will begin the excavation on Friday to examine the soil beneath the pavement.
Could it be Hoffa? I guess we’ll find out soon enough. There are few things as fascinating an a case of a missing person or people.
