For a dead guy, Jimmy still gets around.
Hoffa disappeared in 1975. The Ren Cen hotel went up in 1977. Where did they stash him for two years?
For some years, a popular urban legend purported that the remains of Jimmy Hoffa, whose disappearance coincided with construction of the stadium, had been buried under one of the end zones at the field. ... This was tested by the Discovery Channel show Mythbusters, and they were unable to find any sign of a body.
I don't have a lot of confidence in their made-for-TV science, but it is entertaining. Maybe they can get another segment out of the new location.
Interesting theory about what happened to Hoffa. My ex-mother-in-law was Hoffa’s secretary. She thinks they took him to a nearby car crushing/melting place. Who knows.
Since the teamsters signed off on the Consent Decree the DOJ effectively runs the union under a federal trusteeship
Hoffa Lite doesn't sneeze without an OK from DOJ
James Riddle Hoffa was the father ... James P. Hoffa is there now after Government stooge Ron Carey was caught swaping cash for campaign contributions with leftist groups like Project Vote, ACORN, and Rich Trumpka and Andy Stern .... James P.'s brother 'Chuckie' was adopted ...... and there any number of back stories on that adoption
It is widely held that Chuckie was involved at a low level in setting up James Riddle's disappearance
in knowledgeable circles the story goes that Tony Jackolone/Giacalone (sp?) ... Jacko ... a Detroit criminal .... or Tony Provensano ... 'Tony Pro' ... JC 73 & LU 560 North Jersey .... facilitated the hit with their goons
The Detroit story ends with Jimmy as melted into a bumper and the Jersey story has two LU 560 business agents ... the Bragollio (sp) brothers ... bringing the body from Detroit to their south Jersey chicken farm where he was fed through a chipper and mixed with chicken feed
