Why Are Authorities Still Looking For Jimmy Hoffa?

Jimmy HoffaEvery few years authorities propel the long search for former Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa back into the headlines, citing a new place they think the long ago disappeared body might be.

 The former Teamster boss was allegedly kidnapped on July 30, 1975, from a parking lot of a restaurant in Bloomfield Township where he was alleged to have been meeting with two mob leaders, Anthony Provenzano and Anthony Giacalone. 

Since his disappearance, claims of Hoffa’s possible whereabouts have taken FBI investigators and amateur sleuths on wild goose chases for nearly 40 years with, no trace of him being turned up. Theories over the years have suggested that Hoffa’s body was incinerated in a trash compactor in Michigan and buried in an unknown location in Florida, theories that have never panned out.

 Most recently authorities were in Michigan digging up a field. Next year it might be your back yard the way they keep coming back with “Oh I think he might be here”.

 I’m perplexed at why they’re so fixated on finding him. And if they were to find him just what do they plan to do with him? If he does pop up alive, is there some crime they’re going to charge him with?. Good luck with seating a jury of folks that even know who he is. If he turns up dead are they going to give him a burial or something? According to countless reports if he’s dead, its more than likely someone took care of the burial arrangements already, proper notwithstanding.

 With all the missing people to look for, I don’t see how they can justify this sporadic, yet redundant search for a man most Americans don’t even know or care about for that matter.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.

One thought on “Why Are Authorities Still Looking For Jimmy Hoffa?”

  1. Why do they keep looking for Hoffa? I think it’s like visiting a tourist place that only sells cheap, tawdry “T” shirts and trinkets from China-just to say they’ve been there. It’s something they can put on their resume after they retire and start fleecing others with their “expertise.”

    It would be much more effective and efficient if whenever a public building needed razing to call the FBI and make up some story about Hoffa and let them tear it down and haul it off. At least they wouldn’t be wasting everyone’s money with their dog and pony show.

    More importantly, what ever became of the child killers from that same county and same time period? The moniker was “Babysitter Killer” if I recall correctly. A GM CEO’s son was a suspect, as was some guy in a new blue AMC Gremlin, and some guy who took the pseudonym of Lamborghini may have been involved as well.

    Alas, some shrink starts with the homosexual angle while a lawyer’s son was found (dead in the snow) just out side of the county. All the while some well meaning PI-anonymous (Bob, Bill, etc.) is his name-knew all about the killings, but for some odd reason won’t reveal the who, what, when and where of it all. But, it sold about as many newspapers as the Hoffa tall tale.
