Police will excavate the driveway of a home in suburban Detroit in search of former Teamsters union boss, Jimmy Hoffa, who disappeared nearly 40 years ago.
Authorities in the suburb of Roseville said investigators received information that a homicide victim was buried near the suburban home around 35 years ago, which is close to the time of Hoffa’s disappearance, the Detroit News reported.
“[Our] investigation is centering solely on the assumption that a John Doe may have been interred and not Jimmy Hoffa,” Roseville Police Chief James Berlin told the newspaper on Thursday.
“We are proceeding on this case as we would on any other investigation in which we believe we have credible information to conduct an investigation.”
Dan Moldea, author of “The Hoffa Wars” told CNN that he is “very skeptical” that the dig will uncover the former union boss’s body.
Before his disappearance, Hoffa was a powerful figure in American politics and believed to have connections with the mob.
