Cold Case a Hot Lead for Jimmy Hoffa Body?
WBNG ^ | September 27, 2012

Posted on 09/28/2012 1:42:38 PM PDT by nickcarraway

In the southeast Michigan town of Roseville, there will be a dig of a driveway to see if there's a body buried underneath it, and utlimately, if it's the remains of missing Teamsters union-boss Jimmy Hoffa, according to Granite Broadcasting sister station MyTV20 News.

According to the report from MyTV20 News:

Police have used ground-penetrating radar and discovered an anomoly under a driveway pavement that could be the remains of a body buried there some 35 years ago - around the time that Hoffa disappeared.

Read the press release from the Roseville, Michigan police department:

"Roseville Police Investigate Possible Cold Case Homicide " The Roseville Police Department received information that we believe to be credible about a homicide victim whose body was interred in Roseville approximately 35 years ago. As a result of this information Roseville Police Detectives working with the Michigan State Police Crime Lab used a ground penetrating radar to search the area in question looking for ground anomalies. The radar did find an anomaly in the area in which the source of information claimed the body to be located. (A ground penetrating radar can detect an anomaly under the earth but cannot tell you what that anomaly is) .

Because the anomaly is located under a concrete slab, this Friday, Roseville Detectives working in conjunction with a Forensic Pathologist from Michigan State University will have a core sample taken of the area in question in an attempt to ascertain if human remains are present. We are taking this course of action to minimize the amount of damage done to the current home owner’s property if the sample tested is negative for human remains.

The complainant in this matter felt that remains interred if there any, maybe those of Jimmy Hoffa, he is making this assumption as the event may have taken place on or near the day Mr. Hoffa disappeared. The Roseville Police Investigation is centering solely on the assumption that a John Doe may have been interred and not Jimmy Hoffa. We are proceeding on this case as we would on any other investigation in which we believe we have credible information to conduct an investigation."

I heard that, back when Jimmy disappeared. And also that he was put through a woodchipper and the pieces fed to a flock of chickens on a mob-owned farm in New Jersey. Whatever!

Really? As if the mob would have got construction workers involved? With all the little lakes west and north west of the “Lord Fox” where Jimmy had his last supper, ya think there might be a drum in one of them with Jimmy in it? Just my pet theory, no I was just a kid when it happened and didn’t live in the area at the time, but look at a map and think what would these dirt-bags would have done that was easy...

A 500 mile drive....or a 1000 mile drive....Why would anyone think they stayed local with his body.

I think he’s down in the foundation footer, somewhere. Probably in numerous places after going thru the cement mixer blades. LOL.

The cynic in me says the guy needs to re-do the driveway, and doesn’t want to pay for the demolition of the old one...

it defies logic that anyone would take a 500 mile ride with a stiff, especially one that the FBI has a task force organized around!

Luckily Michigan and the towns have a lot of spare cash to accommodate wild goose chases. Wasn’t Michigan just whining about having to close schools, cut police, etc. but they have money to chase a ghost?

Every couple of years, they dig up someplace that someone says Jimmy Hoffa's body it buried there. Even once, (memory is getting bad) they dug up some gangsters back yard in Sterling Heights.......If the mafia wants you gone, no onewill ever find it....Jimmy was trying to get control of the teamsters back....Even tho he was forbidden to have anything to do with the union when he was released from prison....As the head of the teamsters, he was the most powerful man in the country....most everything travels by truck and he could shut down all trucks IN THE UNITED STATES. His power was unlimited...to go from that to a nobody was something he wasn't capable of.. Independant truckers ended up in hospital, dead, or had their rigs burned down....if he was left still breathing, it was a minor miracle....

Jimmy is Goal Post at Giants stadium

Highly unlikely, and also illogical.

Too obvious, too easy to confirm.

Whoever killed him didn't want the body found. It would make more sense for someone with 'construction workers' connections to have it buried under a fresh driveway in a new housing area. The kind that are empty at night.

I doubt that any professional hitman would put a body under a driveway for the simple reason that driveways get dug up from time to time.

I’m sure that a high-profile corpse like Hoffa’s would have been reduced to worm-sized bites mucho pronto. And the hitmen probably too, unless they were very reliable Made Men.

Yes, they think his remains have been found. The skeleton shows signs of scoliosis which proves what his contemporaries said: that his one shoulder was higher than the right.
