Default FBI Digging for Hoffa

Seems like one of these digs occur once a year for old Jimmy's bones.....lol.

FBI Searches Property for Clues About Jimmy Hoffa's Disappearance
Wednesday, May 17, 2006

MILFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The FBI on Wednesday searched property northwest of Detroit for clues to the disappearance of former Teamsters labor union leader Jimmy Hoffa, officials said.

The Teamsters leader was last seen in July 1975 at a restaurant in Oakland County's Bloomfield Township.

Agent Dawn Clenney, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Detroit, said the bureau was executing a search warrant in Milford Township, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) west of Detroit.

Investigators are looking for "evidence of criminal activity that may have occurred under previous ownership" on the property, Clenney said.

Asked if they were looking for Hoffa's remains, she said, "Could be," but declined to comment further.

Reporters were not allowed on the property, described by local media as a horse farm. Images shot from news helicopters showed about a dozen people, some with shovels, standing by an area of newly turned dirt about 10 feet by 15 feet (3 meters by 1.5 meters).

Clenney said the bureau receives numerous leads about Hoffa and "this was one we felt we needed to follow up on."

In May 2004, authorities ripped up the floorboards of a home in Bloomfield Township where a Teamsters boss had said he shot Hoffa to death. But no evidence tied to Hoffa was found.

The claim related to the infamous, unsolved killing was included in a book published months after Sheeran died in 2003 at age 83.

A New Jersey mob hit man who died in March reportedly made a similar deathbed claim.

Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski gave author Philip Carlo what he claimed were graphic details of Hoffa's killing, The Record of Bergen County, New Jersey, reported.

"The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer" is scheduled for release in July.

Oakland County Prosecutor David Gorcyca said Bloomfield Township police were offering assistance but that he knew little about the latest search. - FOX News

Kuklinski is the real deal...I read a book about him, and HBO did a show on him.

I've read the book and saw the interview on HBO. While he was one sick S.O.B., he has been caught in B.S. fairy tales over the years. He recently died on March 5th of 06.

Oh, I wasn't refering to his credibility that way...I meant more like serial killer street cred. The dude was just a stone-cold killer.

I brought up the fairy tales for anybody who decides to read further into this Hoffa situation. That's why I'm not taking his Hoffa information very seriously. But there was no doubt he was a stone-cold killer. When you were known for working with the DeMeo crew of the Gambino Family there is no doubt that your going to get your hands dirty. The difference between your normal mafia soldier and The Ice Man, this guy went out of his way to kill. Innocent people nonetheless. Like I said, sick S.O.B.

I saw that HBO Special on Kuklinski and he was devoid of any human emotions.
Truly a twisted individual.

I would have been nervous as hell doing an interview with him.
