Forty years ago today, Jimmy Hoffa disappeared from the parking lot of a Detroit area restaurant, never to be seen again. He was declared legally dead seven years later. No one has ever been charged with his murder.
Since then, the location of Hoffa's body has been a subject of much debate and rumor and the source of numerous jokes. Here are eight places where Hoffa is said to have been buried: underneath a poker club (California); beneath a swimming pool (Michigan); on a horse farm (Michigan); under a backyard shed (Michigan); beneath Giants Stadium (New Jersey); inside a 55-pound drum at a landfill (New Jersey); dumped in the Everglades (Florida) and, lastly, inside a compacted car that was sent to Japan for recycling.
Back in 1961, Hoffa was brought up on mail fraud charges in federal court in Orlando. His lead counsel was former Florida governor Fuller E. Warren. The charges were dismissed by a federal judge in 1963.
