New research for Jimmy Hoffa
| News Today | Local News
He never told anyone about the new location until, on his deathbed in 2008, told his son about it. So in this version of events, for about 33 years, only one man knew where Hoffa was buried. And then he told a man, and he died.
This is how we keep a secret.
What the son did, until his own health changed. He told the whole story to Dan Moldea, an expert on all things Hoffa, a few months before his death in March 2020. Frank took Moldea there to show it to him. I think he felt that the time was right and that there would be no recrimination because all the players are dead.
By the time Hoffa disappeared in 1975, as you wrote, it was an open secret that his days were numbered. He was trying to regain control of the Teamsters, but it just didn’t happen. What about Anthony Provenzano, the New Jersey gangster known as “Tony Pro”. How does it fit into the image?
Have you seen “The Irishman?” I think the situation was similar to the movie. Hoffa had problems on two fronts. The Teamsters didn’t want him to take over. And Tony Pro had gone from friend to foe because of a fight they had when they were together in jail, as shown in the movie.
Back in Jersey City, looks like it wasn’t an easy funeral.
In Paul’s account to his son, Hoffa’s body was stiff and would not fit into the barrel unless he was facing head first, not feet first. Then Frank thinks his father loaded the cannon onto a front loader and put it in a large hole he had dug. Then he covered it up with smaller barrels on top, with bricks and dirt. Then he covered it all up with a bulldozer.
What Dan Moldea found when he went to the landfill with Fox Nation? And what happens now?
The Fox Nation reporter hired a ground penetrating radar technician to meet with them and Moldea at the site. The technician said he discovered shapes under the earth that appeared to be curved, like barrels. This is not a high quality x-ray image that we are talking about. It’s pretty vague, and you need an expert to interpret it.
We believe the FBI did its own ground penetrating radar search in October and is analyzing the results. Maybe they decide there is nothing there. Maybe they’re digging up everything in there. Stay tuned.
