That question still fascinates people nearly 40 years later.
Hoffa was allegedly meeting with two mafia leaders, Anthony Giacolone and Anthony Provenzano.
Provenzano was a union leader with the Teamsters in New Jersey and had been close to Hoffa.
Hoffa’s wife reported him missing when he did not return home that evening.
His parked car was located at the restaurant but there was no clues left.
There have been many theories as to exactly what happened to Jimmy Hoffa and where his body was hidden.
Hoffa spent time in prison, having been convicted of attempted bribery of a grand jury in 1964, and he was sentenced to eight years in prison. That same year Hoffa was also convicted of fraud for improper use of the Teamsters pension fund.
He received a five-year sentence to run consecutively to his bribery sentence for a total of 13 years.
He began serving his sentence in March of 1967 at the Lewisburg federal penitentiary in Pennsylvania.
He spent less than five years in prison. His sentence was commuted by President Richard Nixon to time served.
After his release, Hoffa received a Teamsters pension of 1.7 million, which was delivered as a one time lump sum payment.
Hoffa was not allowed to participate in union activities until March, 1980 as part of his release.
At the time of Hoffa’s disappearance he was working on an autobiography aptly titled, Hoffa: The Real Story, which was published a few months after his disappearance.
There have been numerous other tip throughout the years, as to where Jimmy Hoffa’s body was buried, and none of those tips revealed any new information
The latest tipster said that a body was buried in Roseville, Michigan about the time that Hoffa disappeared in 1975
Police began drilling outside a suburban Detroit home in which the tipster mentioned, in the search for Jimmy Hoffa, and once again no sign of the notorious Teamsters boss was found
So where is Jimmy Hoffa’s body buried? After all of these years we still do not know.
