Latest search for Hoffa comes up empty
The search for Jimmy Hoffa has hit a dead end--again. The AP has the story:
Tests on soil samples gathered last week from a backyard in suburban Detroit showed no traces that Hoffa — or anyone else — was buried there, Roseville police announced Tuesday.
"Our department just received the soil sample report from Michigan State University, after a battery of tests; the samples submitted for examination showed no signs of human decomposition," the police statement read. "As a result of these tests the Roseville Police Department will be concluding their investigation into the possible interment of a human body upon the property."
Thus ended the latest in a long string of tips and rumors about one of America's great mysteries.
The latest search led police, reporters and curious onlookers to Patricia Szpunar's brick ranch-style home in Roseville. Police in the mostly working- and middle-class community north of Detroit recently received a tip from a man who claimed he saw someone buried there about 35 years ago and that the body possibly belonged to Hoffa.
