Big break through in search for body of Jimmy Hoffa

Monday, October 1, 2012 - 3:59pm

More than 37 years after Jimmy Hoffa vanished without a trace, the trail has led to this suburban home an informant claims he saw a body buried here around the time Hoffa went missing. He first told Dan Moldea, author of "The Hoffa Wars."

Moldea directed him to the local police.  Using ground penetrating radar, authorities found signs of something about two feet under the driveway. Today, they'll take a soil sample to look for evidence of human remains.

Hoffa was last seen outside a Detroit area restaurant in 1975, apparently lured by two mob figures. Since then, the search has taken investigators to Northern Michigan, Giants Stadium in New Jersey and a farm outside Detroit where, in 2006, the FBI razed a 3,000 foot barn and dug under it.

Once the leader of the Teamsters the nation's largest union, Hoffa's connection with organized crime kept him in hot water.

That possibility could also explain the informant's long silence.

Could this be where the 37 year search for Hoffa finally ends?
