Will Hoffa mystery be buried with Giants Stadium?
Yahoo! via AP ^ | 1 Apr 2010 | DAVID PORTER

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – As the story goes, former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa has attended every event at Giants Stadium since 1976, buried in a final resting place somewhere under the west end zone.

As former New York Giants punter Sean Landeta once joked, "It gives a whole new meaning to kicking into the coffin corner."

More than 20 years after a self-described mob hit man set the rumor mill in motion with an interview in Playboy magazine, the question lingers: Is the answer to one of the enduring mysteries of the 20th century buried beneath the stadium — and about to be buried even deeper when the stadium is demolished this spring?

To one former law enforcement official who investigated the case in the 1980s, there is no mystery.

Riiight.
The mob is gonna kill a guy in Detroit and make the 10-hour+ drive to NJ with a body in the trunk.

Never mind the huge tracts of land in Michigan and the construction projects all over Detroit at the time.

NJ has always wanted in on a wholly-Detroit legend.

Can’t believe that Giants Stadium is being demolished.

I remember it being built—in 1975.

Of course that is 35 years ago.

When you have a body, your primary objective is to make it disappear as quickly and completely as possible. Loading it up in a trunk in Detroit and driving 600 miles to New York with it is not how that sort of thing is done.

I personally believe Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran's confession to the Hoffa murder in the book I Hear You Paint Houses, which I recommend.

I think Mythbusters did an episode on this Hoffa theory.

(1) You can still smell a decomposing body when buried in concrete (tested with a pig carcass). The stench is apparently overwhelming.

(2) I think they did underground scans of Giants’ Stadium ... and found nothing.

He got killed, rendered down in a close mob owned rendering factory and that is the end of it.

I had heard that after Hoffa was killed, his body was placed in a drum of a type of highly corrosive acid that completely dissolves a body, bones included.

If there was anything left, it was poured into a sewer somewhere.

The mob used to laugh about how he was dumped into a steel mill crucible and was part of all Chevy fenders.

It wouldn’t surprise me if he was buried there, the hubris of the whole thing makes it plausible.

On the other hand, he was probably make into sausages. (Sick, I know.)

JIMMY CONWAY: "You know that thing we took care of at Giants Stadium?"

HENRY HILL: "Paulie was just talking about that!"

JIMMY CONWAY: "We gotta get it outta there."

HENRY HILL: "What???"

JIMMY CONWAY: "They're tearing down the stadium. They're building a new one. We gotta get it outta there right away!"

Jimmy Hoffa has been processed deacdes ago, by being made into dog food then popped out into the environment.

Maybe they didn’t kill him in Detroit. Maybe they invited him to New Jersey with the promise of an attache case full of money for his favorite charity. Flew him there on a chartered plane with the promise that he’d be home for breakfast. (I’ve got to stop watching made-for-TV movies.)

The funny thing is so many people believe that Osama Bin Laden is still alive. Remember when Obama promised to catch him?

Some years ago I was sitting next to a colorful old man on a train into New York City. He was carrying on a conversation with a friend of his sitting across the aisle, and I couldn't stop laughing at half the things they were talking about.

As the train crossed the Hackensack Meadowlands it passed an old dump site where an underground fire had been burning for weeks. The old man pointed out the window at the smoke wafting up into the air from the ground and said:

"Hey, check it out -- Jimmy Hoffa is smoking in bed again!"

I almost peed in my pants I was laughing so hard at that one.
