Jimmy Hoffa Found Again, Law Enforcement Officials Say

The fate of Jimmy Hoffa has been one of the enduring mysteries of the past 40 years, and, after the Teamster’s disappearance in 1975, the location of his body has become a pop culture reference point.

Jimmy Hoffa was last seen alive at a restaurant, the Machus Red Fox, in the suburbs of Detroit. The union boss was set to meet mafia brass Anthony Giacalone and Anthony Provenzano, and what happened after he was last confirmed to be living in the restaurant’s parking lot is the stuff of legend.

In the ensuing years, the search for Jimmy Hoffa and a conclusive answer to the question of his fate was an often-revisited debate, and the effort to relocate his remains spanned all the way to Giants Stadium. But nearly 40 years later, Hoffa’s body has never been found — and few leads to real answer have ever been revealed.

But as has been reported before, the fuzz may have a bead on Jimmy Hoffa’s final burying grounds — and law enforcement experts say the lead is credible. Anthony Zerilli, a reputed one-time Detroit Cosa Nostra underboss, has come forward to dish on the fate of Hoffa’s remains — and while made men don’t make statements, Zerilli seems to have compelling reason to squeal, as he tells NBC New York:

“I’m dead broke. I got no money … My quality of life is zero.”

According to WDIV, retired Detroit FBI official John Anthony believes that the one-time underboss has no reason to lie and that the feds should take Zerilli seriously:

“You have to regard it as pretty damn good … Pretty credible. Reliable and worthy of the FBI following up on that.”

Jimmy Hoffa Body Search Could Be Over, But Authorities Skeptical It Will Yield A Body

Fellow retired FBI guy from Detroit Andrew Arena told the network:

“If anybody is going to know it’s going to be people like him. There was a select few in the inner circle. He would have been part of that inner circle.”

According to Tony Zerilli, Jimmy Hoffa’s body is buried about 20 miles from the restaurant — and while there were originally plans to move the remains, his killers decided against the risky maneuver. Now 85, the mobster says that he hopes the alleged knowledge would provide closure and that Hoffa didn’t deserve his fate.

    He is buried in the corner stone of the Science Building of William Paterson University, NJ. The next night, it was poured during the night without a permit and without union workers. The union workers took over in the morning never receiving an answer about who poured the cement the night before. No work order exists. No inspection before or after the pouring. One can clearly see from the outside, the different cement used.

    He is buried in the cornerstone of the science building, William Paterson University, Wayne, NJ. It was poured the next night without union workers. In the morning union workers continued working never learning who poured cement night before. No work order. No cement order. No inspection before, during, after pouring. One can clearly see there was a different cement used. That was Tony Pro's back yard.

    Was ground up as dog food and ended up in dog food cans all over the nation (delivered in Union driven trucks of course) to pet stores. Bought by dog owners and fed to their dogs (who had no adverse reaction). Pooped on to the streets and in some cases picked up and bagged then sent to landfills. Other cases just dried up and blown away with the wind. So yesterday news.

    Way back in HIGH School daze, a bunch of us were coming back from working our "co-op" jobs out by Pontiac Airport.

    There was a crew, with a news team from Ch. 4 watching, digging in an open field, looking for Hoffa.

    I thought I saw Amelia Earhart.

    He is still alive. He changed his name and now hangs out with Elvis and D.B. Cooper. On weekends they go and hang out with Bigfoot who has been shaved down and is the new CEO of Hostess.
