Where IS Jimmy Hoffa? - Northern Michigan's News Leader

Where IS Jimmy Hoffa?

Posted: Updated:

Where is Jimmy Hoffa?  It's a question that's remained a mystery for 38 years.

But, new information from a Detroit Area "Mafia Captain," has breathed new life into the search.

Tony Zerilli told a Detroit Area Television Station that he knows where Hoffa's body is buried.

He says that the plan was to bury the ex-teamster boss, in Oakland County, 30 miles from a Detroit Area Restaurant, where Hoffa disappeared in 1975.

Zerilli was in prison when Hoffa vanished.

He also says there was a plan to take his body to a hunting lodge in Northern Michigan, but that never happened.

The FBI has not commented.
