Search for the body of Jimmy Hoffa, the former Teamsters boss, has led to a trash dump in New Jersey. Fox News has learned that his remains were discovered on Wednesday.
Officials with the Detroit F.B.I. office and investigators from a number of regional police departments had been gathering evidence to aid in the case, but the fresh evidence has led to the landfill in Edison, New Jersey. The landfill is just one mile outside of New York City.
New Jersey State Police recently issued a statement that “investigators from the F.B.I. Detroit field office and homicide detectives from the following locations were among those present during the forensic investigation at the site located at and adjacent to the landfill of Edison.” They continued: “Officials from the New Jersey State Police and Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office were also present at the location.”
The unidentified body has been retrieved and taken to a medical examiner’s office for further examination. The F.B.I. has not commented on the discovery.
