Jimmy Hoffa Mythbusters, Just the Facts:
A new book claims that Jimmy Hoffa was buried in the concrete foundation under Detroit’s Renaissance Center in 1975.
General Motors began using the “RenCen” as its world headquarters in 1996.
The time line and Michigan location make the RenCen a more likely resting place for the Teamsters leader than other rumored locations like the Florida Everglades or Giants Stadium in New Jersey’s Meadowlands.
New York, New York — A new book claims that the remains of Teamsters Union leader James R. “Jimmy” Hoffa were buried under the foundation of the then under-construction Renaissance Center in Detroit, Michigan after his disappearance and presumed assassination in 1975. That’s right, GM’s headquarters may be the tomb of Jimmy Hoffa.
The new book, entitled “The Weasel: A Double Life in the Mob” (Wiley; November 2011), is the story of Marvin Elkind who describes himself as a “chauffer and goon for mob bosses” and was written by Elkind and journalist Adrian Humphries. In a Christmas Day interview with The New York Post Elkind claims to have learned the whereabouts of Hoffa’s body during a Teamsters conference held in Detroit in 1985 — a decade after the labor leader’s notorious disappearance on July 30, 1975 from the parking lot of the Machus Red Fox Restaurant in Bloomfield Township outside of Detroit.
Hoffa was reportedly at the restaurant waiting to meet Anthony “Tony Jack” Giacalone, who had ties to both the Teamsters and organized crime, and mobster Anthony “Tony Pro” Provenzano.
