Authorities dig up driveway in search of Hoffa ... not in the Meadowlands.

    ... but in Michigan, based on a tip. My question: Is this really necessary? Is it worth expending any resources at this point to find his body?

    Find him at all costs. LOL Why are we looking for this guy anyway? Just to solve the fucking mystery?

    In Detroit, they'll probably find multiple bodies.

    Saw something about this yesterday. Will be interested to see what happens if they find a body. Especially if it isn't Hoffa.

    And I guess it is worth it. Cold cases get investigated all the time. This would certainly qualify as one of the biggest cold cases out there.

    Is it really a cold case? Are they going to try and figure out which former mobster killed him or are we just looking for the body?
  6. This is kinda bullshit.
    The only report I saw yesterday was the sheriff specifically stating they did NOT believe they would find Hoffa's body.
    He said the timelime of events they had did not match, but there was enough credibility in the information they got and enough of an anomaly in the radar results to do conduct a more thorough search the area. But again, NOT for Hoffa.

    Yet I every headline and story refers to Hoffa.

    I knew it was being way overplayed when Geraldo Rivera didn't show up.

    Here in the Detroit area, the general reaction has been, "They're looking for Hoffa AGAIN? Eh, oh well."

    I thought Frank Whaley killed Hoffa?

    The early 90s were the Frank Whaley half-decade you know.
