'No discernible remains' in Hoffa search, police chief says

Source: CNN

Police found no "discernible remains" in their search Friday for long-missing labor strongman Jimmy Hoffa, police Chief James Berlin said.

Two soil samples taken from beneath a storage shed outside a suburban Detroit home will nevertheless go to a lab at Michigan State University for testing. Officials are expected to announce by Monday night if they've found evidence bearing out a tipster's claim that he saw what appeared to be a body being buried at the site the day after the former Teamsters chief disappeared in 1975.

Even if they do, Berlin said he doubts any remains would be those of Hoffa.

"It would be great if it was, because I would like to bring closure to his family and the tens of thousands of Teamsters that idolize this man, and just the southeast of Michigan," said Berlin, of the Roseville Police Department. "This is kind of like an open wound that won't go away. Every couple of years this happens, and all you guys come out here and we have to relive it."

1. I lived in Islip Long Island at the time of his disappearance

Someone whom my brothers believed knew some Mafia people said Hoffa was put in an automobile crusher and would never be found. East Islip did have a compound where some known Mafia lived

6. Jimmy Hoffa was stashed under my kitchen floor

And the FBI is welcome to come tear it up, as long as they replace it with some nice ceramic tile, cherry cabinets, granite countertops.

I think someone was just looking for a new free driveway, complements of the government.
