"Hoffa's Right Here!"

Somebody else is finally claiming to know where Jimmy Hoffa, the president of the Teamsters' Union from 1957 to 1975, is buried. If you didn't know, Hoffa disappeared in '75 when he was on his way to a meeting with a New Jersey Teamster boss and a mafia capo. This guy claims to not only know where the body is, but also claims to have pulled the trigger. Now, there have to be at least 800 people in this country who have claimed to have had a hand in Mr. Hoffa's disappearance, which is one of the more famous vanishings of the twentieth century. But this guy has got the cops ear because another missing person, unsolved for thirty years, has turned up right where he said it would: under his house. Where will this lead? Will we finally have some closure on this hotly-debated piece of amercian folklore? In a word: no.
