Feds End Hunt For Hoffa

The FBI has called it quits on the umpteenth search for Jimmy Hoffa’s remains, leaving empty-handed from a farm field in suburban Detroit after two and a half days of digging. The latest hunt for the ex–Teamsters boss’s remains was prompted by 86-year-old Tony Zerilli, a former Mafia man. For $4.99 online, Zerilli is selling a secondhand account of how Hoffa was supposedly dragged from a car, hit repeatedly with a shovel, and buried alive by a few of Zerilli’s associates. Zerilli’s lawyer has denied claims that his client was only looking to profit from the media attention and search for a man whose disappearance nearly 40 years ago continues to be the subject of evergreen fascination.
