Reputed Mafioso tip triggers new Hoffa body search
Associated Press ^ | Jun 18, 2013 3:12 AM EDT | Corey Williams

The FBI saw enough merit in a reputed Mafia captain’s tip to once again break out the digging equipment in search of the elusive remains of former Teamsters union leader Jimmy Hoffa, last seen alive when he left for lunch with two mobsters 38 years ago.

Federal agents brought excavation equipment Monday to a field in suburban Detroit where Tony Zerilli said Hoffa’s remains were buried.

Zerilli, 85, told Detroit television station WDIV in February that he knew the location of the remains. …

I'll bet Robert Mueller KNOWS who's heading this STUPID thing.....but NOT the IRS!!

IS there an investigation going on??? I don't think so.

Since Mueller is dedicated to IGNORING felonies
against the American people (misprision of felony by HIM)
this is probably created to give the impression
that they are doing ... something (while they ignore
every serious Islamic terrorist, too).

Mueller says: “We will investigate no crime before its time.”

The FBI will dig for Hoffa (probably as a favor to his union thug son) but haven’t asked TEA party members about the crimes they have had committed against them. This is a big middle finger to us.

I find this interesting...

Will the average S.E. Michigan Citizen take the time to read or watch about the machinations and intricacies of the Assets = Liabilities + Owner Equity and how's and why's of the impending Chapter 9 Bankruptcy of Detroit....

Or...

Will they read or watch about the Jimmy Dig.

I think you know the answer...

This story is being kept alive for the tabloids. It is really turning into a farce. There are, however key points to be made:

Hoffa was murdered by the Mob (Giacalone family) in Detroit and his remains are probably part of I-75 in Detroit, that's it.

He knew too much, had too much dirt on everybody else (including J. Edgar Hoover, who died in ‘72) and interestingly enough was eliminated (in 1975) before the HSCA could call him as a witness as they conducted a reinvestigation into the JFK assassination in 1976.

He was killed not just for the JFK/RFK connection but for many other reasons as well.

I am not making the linkage to the JFK case just in order to invent yet another, deeper conspiracy theory.

The Mob was involved in many “hits” including JFK's. Hoffa and the Kennedy brothers did not get along especially when RFK (as Attorney General) was putting intense heat on the Teamsters, Mob, AFL-CIO, UAW and the Teamster Truckers in the early 60’s.

Hoffa hated them and knew who killed them both, therefore, he had to go too.

...that would imply that there is a whole body somewhere there - hard to believe they'd leave him intact.

One thing I have learned from studying the Mob (and other criminal syndicates) is that they don’t follow reason. That’s why it was so dangerous to hang around them.

Didn’t a former hit-man claim that he shot Hoffa and took the body to a crematorium?

The Mob does not follow reason? Interesting claim. I would have thought they follow a consistent pattern of crime & cover up, fronts, payoffs, etc. Can you provide other examples of such behavior?

They wanted to do a hit on Sinatra and Sammy Davis. JFK? RFK? Gotti was completely nuts.
Henry Hill claimed he knew where dozens of bodies were buried(all hits) and there only turned out to be a handful. Witness Protection is full of ex-mobsters.

They wanted to hit Sinatra and Sammy Davis? Why not Dean Martin and Peter Lawford or Joey Bishop while they were at it? You are making it sound like the Mob was in the business of knocking off just about everybody associated with them and considered a friend to them. Why would Sinatra be on that list? Was it his connection to Sam Giancana and JFK as well? Sorry for throwing JFK into the equation each time but I did a lot of research on the JFK assassination years ago. It is the ONLY conspiracy theory I actually believe in.

Who cares, the government shouldn’t be wasting time and money to find a dead scumbag.

I read your ignorant uninformed comment and understood that you are ignorant and uninformed. I’d say that my reading skills are pretty damn good for an average S.E. Michigan resident.

Put aside all the smarmy Detroit Jokes for a minute, it has the highest concentration of engineers ( auto and suppliers ) in the nation. I just wished they outnumbered the low information types....
