Jimmy Hoffa disappeared without a trace from a Detroit restaurant where he was supposed to "settle some funds" but the body was never found.
Now, I don't know much about the case itself but I know enough about how mobsters work. If I were wanting to get rid of him for some reason, I would have found a secure location to kill him and then scatter his body parts in various burial locations. Hence, why a body was never found...they didn't keep it intact.

This is just my theory, though. Got some others?

Jimmy Hoffa Remains Found? Federal Agents Dig For Body In Suburban Detroit Field [VIDEO]

Federal agents began digging a up a field in northern Oakland Township Monday in hopes of finding the remains of Jimmy Hoffa. Creative Common







In what has turned into a somewhat of a wild goose chase, federal agents are searching a field in suburban Detroit after a key source said remains of former Teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa might be found there.
While the FBI has declined immediate comment on the search in Oakland Township, about 25 miles north of Detroit, Tony Zerilli, a former mobster with ties to the Detroit area, told local station WDIV in February that the FBI had enough information for a search warrant to dig at the site.
Zerilli, who was in prison in 1975 when Hoffa disappeared from a Detroit-area restaurant, told WNBC New York in January that the union leader's final resting place is about 20 miles north of the restaurant where he was last seen. According to the former mob boss, Hoffa was buried in a shallow grave and the plan was to move the body at another time, but that never happened.
"Once he was buried here, he was buried, and they let it go,” Zerilli said.      
Despite multiple sources claiming in past years to know the whereabouts of Hoffa’s remains, none have proven to be correct. But when notified back in January of Zerilli’s willingness to come forward, former U.S. Attorney Keith Corbett, who prosecuted organized crime in Detroit for 20 years, suggested to NBC that Zerilli might just be the person who could lead authorities to the body.
“The bureau had a short list of people they wanted to talk to about that, and I can’t think of anybody on that list who was more highly placed than Anthony Zerilli,” Corbett said in an earlier interview with NBC 4.
"This is certainly the most interesting and attractive lead that has come up since I’ve been involved with this -- and I think the bureau would react the same way,” he added.
Federal agents said that while Zerilli has been unwilling to give up any names that might lead to an arrest in the case, he might be one of the few men who actually knows where Hoffa's body was buried.
“Clearly, when he returned he would’ve been a person, based on his position in the hierarchy, who would have been able to learn the facts and circumstances surrounding the disappearance of James Earl Hoffa,” Corbett said.
Although Zerilli has said that he's simply seeking closure for himself and Hoffa’s family, he's also working on a book and has a website, HoffaFound.com, the NBC report said.
“I’d like to just prove to everybody that I’m not crazy," Zerilli said. "And it means a lot to me. What happened happened while I was in jail. And I feel very, very bad about it and it should never have happened to Jim Hoffa. He didn’t deserve what happened to him.”

While discussing this with somebody some time ago, they seem to think that Hoffa was made into burgers. Sounds really really really gross, but this would show someone really wanted to really get rid of the body in a smart way. :whistle:

I lived in the Detroit area for 10 years.  While I was living there, I visited the location on Telegraph Road Jimmy was last known to be seen (the Red Fox Restaurant) and studied the pictures of the area circa 1975.  In my opinion there is no way a body will be uncovered.  Whether Kuklinski's claim is correct or Zerilli's, there is and was too many viable opportunities to "hide" the body so no one would find it.

The most credible story I've heard was by some retired mafia guy saying Hoffa's body was taken to a mafia wrecking yard and crushed inside a car, then the car was shredded. He just seemed he knew what he was talking about.

Nothing to do with Hoffa, but I found this story when I followed your link. Too funny not to post.

Yeah, he was an old guy, been around all his life in the mob. I guess, being an old man, he was excused from active duty. :)

More than likely was disposed of in a way where it would never be found. Maybe he was eaten to death by pigs? They did that last year in Italy, it was a big news story.

No one knows for absolutely sure but Frank Sheeran's account is considered by the FBI and others in LE as the most likely scenario. Hoffa was run through the incinerator in a funeral home after two to the head by Sheeran. No body no crime.  Here's a recent article on the case.  http://www.foxnews.c...ystery-endures/

Yes, I find that seems most likely.   Cremation also would explain the lack of a body.  
I consider this case closed.
