New chapter in Jimmy Hoffa search: Police drill at Michigan home

Police will drill outside a suburban Detroit residence Friday in the search for Jimmy Hoffa, the labor strongman whose disappearance is one of the most notorious and mysterious in U.S. history.

A tipster told police that a body was buried at the spot in Roseville, Michigan, around the same time the Teamsters boss disappeared in 1975.

The tipster did not claim it was Hoffa's body, authorities said.

Police Chief James Berlin told CNN on Thursday that while the tipster's information seems credible, he's not convinced the body is Hoffa's because of the timeline. He spoke with the tipster on August 22 and says he believes the person did see a burial.

    Whoops, current as of this posting, negative results from the Michigan driveway exhumation. Hoffa's disposition remains a mystery. That is all.

    Ah, heck, everyone knows that if the mob bosses don't want someone found, they're not going to get found.

    I just saw Hoffa in a Starbucks in Newark. He ordered one of those new Pumpkin lattes, and a scone. He looked pretty healthy to me.
