Last week, authorities took two soil samples from a home in Roseville, Michigan, in hopes that progress could be made on the everlasting search for Teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa’s body. Today, the results from the samples are due to be announced.
Update: No human remains have been found.
Unfortunately, according to reports, the police will be unable to determine whether Hoffa was actually buried on the property, even if they do find something. They’ll only be able to tell if there was actually a body buried there. If that is found to be the case, they’ll have to start a whole new process in trying to determine whether or not it was Hoffa.
This particular chapter of the search that has been going on since 1975 began when police were tipped by a man who claimed to have seen a body buried on the property the day after Hoffa disappeared. According to CNN, the tipster allegedly once did business with Anthony Giacalone, the “reputed Detroit Mafia street enforcer” whom Hoffa was supposed to meet at a Detroit-area restaurant where he was last seen.
The story has once again captured the interest of the country, and people are anxiously waiting to find out the results.
Here’s a bit of what people are saying about it on Twitter:
