OAKLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. — According to a USA Today report, The FBI said Wednesday that investigators have found no remains of former Teamster Boss Jimmy Hoffa at a farm field in suburban Detroit and have ended their search at the site.

The announcement was made by Robert Foley, head of the FBI in Detroit, just a few hours after a backhoe and bulldozer and forensic anthropologists resumed digging for a third day..

Some skeptical officials, however had already questioned whether a Michigan State Police K-9's alert at site Tuesday was for human remains — or animal bones.

This Oakland Township property came under scrutiny in January after Tony Zerilli, 85, the son of reputed former Detroit mob boss Joseph Zerilli, told investigators that Hoffa was buried there. Tony Zerilli said Hoffa was struck with a shovel and buried alive here with a slab of concrete placed over the body.

    Why does the FBI still bother with the Hoffa thing? Everyone inside and outside of the Mob knows on the street that Jimmy Hoffa was buried in concrete under an office building near a mall in New Jersey. Good luck finding him.

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
