The FBI has called off the dig for Jimmy Hoffa in a suburban Detroit field where a tipster insisted he was buried alive. No human remains were found during three days of excavation, officials said. The feds were led to the site by Tony Zerilli, who claims he was told the Teamsters Boss was whacked with a shovel and then entombed beneath concrete slabs in a barn. ...
Since Hoffa vanished in 1975, authorities have searched dozens of spots for his body. Informants have claimed he was dumped at Giants Stadium, fed to the alligators in the Everglades and shipped to Japan in a compacted car.
Zerilli, an elderly ex-mobster currently peddling his new book, Hoffa Found, claims that he was told back in the 1970s where Hoffa was buried. "I know he's there," Zerilli told NBC before the search ended. "I'm not wrong."
Let the process of elimination continue.
