I read the book "I heard you paint houses," which was based on interviews with Hoffa's teamster strong-man and mafia hit man Frank Sheeran, which claimed Sheeran was the shooter. Obviously we cannot know for certain, but it seems legit to me. It didn't answer the question for sure of what happened to the body because Sheeran wasn't involved in that, but Sheeran was told the body would be cremated, so it would never be found.

How many times have we heard that claim in the past and how many times did it go nowhere?

I have it on good authority that Jimmy Hoffa is not dead. He had a relatively unknown actor whacked and assumed his life, later appearing in such films as 'As Good as it Gets', 'About Schmidt' and 'The Departed'. He can frequently be seen sitting courtside at LA Lakers games with his son; Adam Sandler.

They already know what happened to Hoffa and kept from the public.

Wait, can you really dissolve someone in molten metal? Deep-fry them, maybe.

They found two concrete slabs in a field...

Just as an old mobster claimed.

Quote:
They unearthed two concrete slabs, about six feet by 12 feet each, according to the source, who is familiar with the search. They matched claims by Tony Zerilli, 85, the son of reputed former Detroit mob boss Joseph Zerilli, that Hoffa, 62, was buried there. Zerilli claims Hoffa was struck with a shovel and then buried alive on the property, with a slab of concrete placed over the body.

For a long time I thought he may have been buried inside concrete.
