expecting an end to the Jimmy Hoffa mystery Thursday were disappointed
once again as the first police search related to the case in years
came up empty.
to media reports, an inmate who had led police to at least one other
body tipped them that under an above-ground swimming pool in the
Detroit area, they would find buried a briefcase containing clues
to the final fate of the Teamsters Union leader, who disappeared
to The Associated Press, the case reportedly included evidence
that Hoffa had been injected with drugs or poison.
press reports said police were told they would find Hoffa’s body
under the pool.
after digging out the bottom of the pool in an effort filmed by
virtually every major national news operation, the investigators
found only dirt.
Hoffa Jr. now holds his father’s old job at the Teamsters. Bret
Caldwell, a spokesman for the union, told The AP he would
have no statement on the search.
