Mobster Tony Zerilli, 85, said earlier this year that the former Teamsters president was buried in a vacant lot in northern Oakland Township, which is about 20 miles from the restaurant where Hoffa was last seen in July 1975.
Zerilli added that the plan was to move Hoffa’s body at a later date, but it never materialized.
"Once he was buried here, he was buried and they let it go," he said. Zerilli was in prison at the time.
Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said during a press conference Monday says bringing closure to the case is "long overdue."
"This has been one of those open wounds for a long time and actually as this was spinning up and we were chatting earlier last week and especially yesterday I was thinking about what Father's Day means to the family that doesn't have closure on this case, and families like them all across the country that have a missing loved one and didn't know what happened," he said.
