|Reputed Mafioso tip triggers new Hoffa body search
Updated Jun 18, 09:51 AM
OAKLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. - The FBI saw enough merit in a reputed Mafia captain's tip to once again break out the digging equipment to search for the remains of former Teamsters union leader Jimmy Hoffa, last seen alive before a lunch meeting with two mobsters nearly 40 years ago.
Federal agents resumed the search Tuesday morning.
Zerilli, 85, told Detroit television station WDIV in February that he knew the location of the remains, and his lawyer, David Chasnick, said Zerilli was "thrilled" that investigators were acting on the information.
