Finally, could this be what really happened to Jimmy Hoffa?
Confession: I Burned Hoffa's Body

DETROIT, March 13, 2004

(AP) The FBI will investigate a purported deathbed confession of a former Pennsylvania Teamster official that says he helped dispose of the body of Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa.

The confession, said to have been written by Francis (Frank) Sheeran before he died Dec. 14 in a nursing home near Philadelphia, says he flew to Pontiac in a small plane on the day Hoffa disappeared, picked up Hoffa's body from the killers and drove it to a Hamtramck trash incinerator, where it was burned.

But the veracity of the three-page letter is in question.

1. If you have Discovery Channel ....
right now the show "Mythbusters" is figuring out a way to prove/disprove Hoffa is buried in Giants Stadium. They will be giving results at the end.

7. No soap ...
They tested the rumored places, the 50 yard line, the end zones, seating section 107 and the "bump" on the 10 yard line. Noting found underneath; they used an ultrasonic finder.

6. I grew up right by Youngstown, Ohio and rumor says
that Hofia is now part of the exit ramp from I 80 to Liberty! And then, again, I also heard he became dog food. Your guess is as good as mine!

2. Interesting, and I bet
the veracity of the letter, I suspect, will be the diversion for the Bush Crime family this summer.

I wonder if it is real.

5. I thought when you burned bodies
that pieces of bone were left that could identify the victim. :shrug; The novels lied.
