"As soon as they pulled near the barn, [Jimmy] Hoffa was dragged out of the car, and bound and gagged."

"A shallow hole was already dug in the barn floor. He put up a fight, but he was easily overpowered. …(One of the men) picked up a shovel and cracked Hoffa over the head with it. …They threw him into the hole, and buried him alive. He wasn't shot, he wasn't stabbed, nothing like that. A cement slab of some sort was placed on top of the dirt to make certain he was not going to be discovered. And that was it. End of story."

UPDATE: Under that slab, no Hoffa found.

So much for the end zone of Giants Stadium.

I wonder if they went to Mom's house for some pasta afterward.

No sequester in digging up a dead body. Why waste the money? The murderers are dead. Why not spend the money and the FBI's time to find the missing, not-yet-dead?

I bet it's Geraldo's Al Capone's Treasure Vaults 2.0.

I certainly hope they sang a chorus of "Solidarity Forever" while covering him up.

Who the fuck cares? What a waste of time and money.

Leave the shovel, take the cannoli

Whenever superior folks stroke their chins and tell me that there are no real conspiracies, I ask them where Jimmy Hoffa is buried.

BTW -- that nineties film with Jack Nicholson as Jimmy Hoffa holds up pretty well. I watched it late one night several months ago.

Lots of people have claimed to have participated in Jimmy Hoffa's disappearance, including Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski.

Apparently Mr. Hoffa was shovel ready.

Fox News says:

In 2004, Frank Sheeran, a close friend of Hoffa and a mob hitman, told Fox News that he killed Hoffa inside a Detroit house in 1975. Testing done by former state police detectives found the presence of blood in the floor of the house, matching Sheeran's story that he shot Hoffa and dragged his body down a hallway.

At the time, Sheeran said Hoffa was cremated in a funeral home.


Conclusion: Somebody is lying, and considering that a concrete slab was apparently not found today . . .

Well, that's the problem. As I recall in the Sam Giancana bio by his brother and godson, Giancana was behind Hoffa's death as well as Marilyn Monroe's.

Still the truth is out there and might emerge. Sometimes these things get settled.

The Hoffa mystery is fascinating. Such disappearances of already famous people always are. "What happened to Jimmy Hoffa?" has elicited as many theories and false leads as the disappearance of Amelia Earhart.

I remember all this as I was there. Oh, wait, that was in the movie "Casino."
Sorry.

The Hoffa mystery is fascinating.

I agree, and I don't know why I am fascinated. I guess it's because it may involve a 1975 Mercury Marquis Brougham, a restaurant in an upper-scale Detroit suburb, and an otherwise unremarkable Wednesday afternoon.

Oh, and very dangerous people with guns and shovels.

All of this Hoffa stuff reminds me of another Detroit badass I read about. In the 70s this guy ran Detroit's heroin trade, he once plotted to rob a Brink truck with an inside man and even threatened to blow up Detroit airport unless he was paid a million bucks. To top it off, he was a federal agent - an ATF man! The book about him's called BAD LIKE JESSE JAMES. Something about Detroit man....

Hey ed. Everybody knows that Allie Sherman was buried in the end zone at Giants Stadium.

Jeeez.
