FBI Searching New Jersey Landfill For Hoffa’s Body

Jimmy Hoffa’s search is back in the spotlight.

NBC News reports:

“The nearly half-century search for the remains of union boss Jimmy Hoffa has led the FBI to a former New Jersey landfill.

As the traffic roared above them on the Pulaski Skyway, a team of FBI forensic investigators from Detroit and Newark collected evidence on Oct. 25 and 26 from a plot of land in Jersey City and are now analyzing it, the FBI confirmed Friday.

‘Last month, the FBI obtained a search warrant to conduct a site survey underneath the Pulaski Skyway,’ Special Agent Mara Schneider of the FBI’s Detroit field office said. ‘That data is currently being analyzed. Because the affidavit in support of the search warrant was sealed by the court, we are unable to provide any additional information.’

Schneider also didn’t explicitly name Hoffa in her statement. But NBC News has confirmed that the FBI is, in fact, looking for the body of the former Teamsters president who vanished in 1975 in Michigan and has long been rumored to be buried in New Jersey.”
