Authorities Investigate New Jimmy Hoffa Tip In Roseville

It’s been 37 years since the ex-boss of the Teamsters Union, Jimmy Hoffa, went missing. His fate is the stuff of local legend and mob movie scripts. Was he fed to tigers? Compacted in a car? Incinerated? Still, with a $300,000 reward for information leading to the whereabouts of his body, there =have been numerous searches in recent years around Detroit.

In 2003, maybe he was buried beneath a swimming pool in the garden of a house. Under the floor of a home in 2004. And there was a massive search at a Milford horse farm in 2006.

This time, investigators are acting on a tip that his body could be buried beneath a driveway in Roseville.

For WDET’s Quinn Klinefelter, a new tip on Hoffa’s whereabouts hits close, maybe a bit too close, to home.
