View Full Version : Desperately Seeking Hoffa

I am perusing the news and just observed a helicopter shot of the efforts to locate and exhume Hoffa's body. This has sponsored a question that I would like to ask my fellow Planeteers. I have, therefore, constructed this new thread which I have titled, "Desperately Seeking Hoffa".

My question is essentially this; Who cares?

Hoffa has been dead for decades. They know he's dead. We've gotten along fine without locating his dead remains. Now, we're spending 1/2 bazillion dollars to find a fully decayed corpse (they have destroyed a barn, dug up 800 acres of ground with large equipment, dozens of men are standing around watching them break concrete at likely 30 dollars an hour each, etc.), resources that could be used to find actual, real, live criminals are being expended in the effort, and the result will be finding either nothing or a completely decomposed body.

Perhaps I have converted to Mr. tk13's martynomics. But, I imagine that anyone who was involved in the killing of Hoffa is probably dead or senile now, too. So, what good can possibly come from finding this guy?

I am interested in your thoughts on this vitally important, topical, and relevant subject.

I agree...who cares?...

Unimportant, old, and irrelevant.

Besides, he probably had it coming anyway.

Saw that on TV.Dig up Michigan farm, seemed extreme
but the fact right before death union bosses, etc brought in a back how, then took it out later.

Lazy union guys wont dig a grave with a shovel and now will get caught with a body there.

Seems extreme to find a body unless their an
insurance question about death (faked it somehow) and
money paid out to decendants.

To answer your question Mr. Fax I can only speak for myself in saying that I personally don't care about finding this individuals remains; if there are any. I would much rather those resources go into locating Bin Laden.

Agreed....spend the resources elsewhere. Let the insurance company pay to dig him up.

That also falls in line with Cops running radar traps in rush hour,
Go do something useful and track down a real criminal.

Hoffa was as much a crooked thug as the mafia, everyone knows he's dead, I agree with the thread title, who cares, I know I don't

That's a valid point, Mr. nm_dbf. I hadn't thought of the insurance aspect of it.

Yet, I'm wondering. Hasn't he already been declared dead? What would digging him up prove exactly? From an insurance perspective, I mean.

But, that's the whole thing, Mr. chagrin. If nobody cares. And, I mean nobody, who has an interest in digging him up?

The Hoffa family, sure. And, the media likes it because it's a story. But, there really isn't anyone to prosecute because the person or persons who did the deed are already dead or too old to care. So what is the government going to do with a bag of Hoffa bones?

Real proof of death? FBI? etc No reason to me, just to close the books.

Insurance paid, no real body, question of fraud if he faked it.

Not sure how much, if any Life insurance....Who would ensure a teamster leader? Policy premium must be high...

Kinda high risk job ...


But The whole bring in a backhow to bury him...

This could be a Sapranos episode...4 Fat guys drinkin' smokin' tell some guy how to dig a hole.

Color me curious about why do it as well.

Yup........they are going to have to bring down Giants Stadium to find the body.

I always thought it was different body parts in different parts of the stadium so that they would literally have to tear down the whole thing to find his whole body?

<i>they are going to have to bring down Giants Stadium to find the body</i>

Actually Mythbusters did an episode with ground penetrating radar at Giants stadium a few weeks back. They came up with nada. They also exploded the idea that he was buried in a public place under concrete. They proved that the decompsition smell would penetrate the concrete and give away the location.

By the way how did a thread on Hoffa get hijacked with fart definitions?

Barn razed in search
On Wednesday, crews spent about three hours gobbling up the barn with a 75,000-pound excavating machine. The investigators had begun removing the 200-square-foot concrete floor of the barn on Thursday when they found something, WDIV reported.

The barnís destruction was the most dramatic moment in the week since dozens of FBI agents descended on the horse farm 30 miles from Detroit.

No trace of Hoffa has ever been found, and no one has ever been charged in the case.

Dawn Clenney, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Detroit, said on Wednesday nothing significant has been found so far.

Donald Shouse of nearby Highland Township, who has done business on the farm for three decades, said the structure was built sometime in the 1970s and was the oldest barn on the site.

Officials have said the search, which began May 17 at the Hidden Dreams Farm in Milford Township, would last a couple of weeks and involve cadaver dogs, demolition experts, archaeologists and anthropologists.

A government investigator said last week that Donovan Wells, who lived on the land at the time, was the one who gave the FBI the tip that has sparked the intense effort to solve a legendary mystery.

They're looking for him in Michigan now, Mr. ck_IN. I guess that, eventually, assuming they can't find him anywhere else, they'll look for him on the moon.

As for the fart definitions. That was me. I made up some fart definitions and hijacked my own thread in a desperate attempt to see if I could get to 25 posts.

"The desert. Man Iíll tell ya, thereís a lot of problem buried out there in that desert.
The only problem with burring a problem in the desert is that ya gotta dig the hole first.
If not, and your digging, and someone spots ya, well, now ya got another problem to burry,
which means digging another fu#ken hole.

Hell you could be out there digging fu@king holes all fu@king night"

Myth Busters - The Hunt for Hoffa

The myth revolved around Jimmy Hoffa, a union leader who unexpectedly disappeared, and the rumors that surrounded his disappearance. Among one of the myths was that he was buried under the infamous ten-yard bump in Giants Stadium, a rumor that persisted in various forms of media.

Myth statement: Jimmy Hoffa was buried in or under Giants Stadium.

Notes: Using ground penetrating radar, Adam and Jamie tested several areas on the field held by rumor to be Hoffa's final resting place. No readings were found consistent with a cavity left by a body which had rotted away.

Myth Status: Busted

Appreciate the answer, Mr. Iowanian. I have often wondered about this.

So, dumbassery is more or less a form of stupidology, dipshittery is akin to idiotness, and douchebaggary is like whineyism.

Got it. Thanks.

Wells' lawyer, Joseph Fabrizio, has said his client told the FBI in 1976 that he saw suspicious activity on the farm around the time of Hoffa's disappearance.

Nothing like letting the trail go cold....
