What did Gabrielle Giffords have to say about it, if anything?

She can still talk, can't she?

Man tied to Mafia: Hoffa buried in Detroit area
Monday, January 14, 2013 — A man convicted of crimes as a reputed Mafia captain is claiming missing Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa was buried in suburban Detroit.
Tony Zerilli was in prison when Hoffa disappeared from a Detroit-area restaurant in 1975, but tells New York TV station WNBC he was informed about Hoffa's whereabouts after his release. The ailing 85-year-old took a reporter to a field near Rochester, north of Detroit, but no exact location was disclosed. The report was also aired on Detroit's WDIV. "The master plan was ... they were going to put him in a shallow grave here," Zerilli said (I-Team: Detroit Man Says He Can Reveal Where Jimmy Hoffa Is Buried | NBC New York ). "Then, they were going to take him from here to Rogers City upstate. There was a hunting lodge and they were going to bury in a shallow grave, then take him up there for final burial. Then, I understand, that it just fell through."

This July 26, 1959 file photo of Teamsters Union president Jimmy Hoffa in Washington. Tony Zerilli, convicted of crimes as a reputed Mafia captain, has come forward with claims that missing Teamsters boss was buried in suburban Detroit. The former head of the FBI in Detroit said Zerilli was reputed to be the underboss of the Detroit organized crime family, so he would have been in the know. Hoffa disappeared from a Detroit-area restaurant in 1975.

Zerilli did not say during the aired interview why he chose to make his claims now. WNBC reported he is promoting an upcoming book titled "Hoffa Found," the website for which promises to reveal details about Hoffa's death. No listed phone number for Zerilli could be found Monday by The Associated Press. The FBI declined to comment when asked if Zerilli's claims were credible. Former Detroit FBI head Andrew Arena said the remarks deserve serious consideration. "Anthony Zerilli was reputed to be the underboss of the Detroit organized crime family, so he would have been in the know," Arena said. Zerilli's criminal record includes a 2002 conviction for conspiracy and extortion. He was sentenced to six years in prison.

Hoffa, Teamsters president from 1957-71, was an acquaintance of mobsters and adversary to federal officials. The day he disappeared, he was supposed to meet with a New Jersey Teamsters boss and a Detroit Mafia captain. In September, police took soil from a suburban backyard after a tip Hoffa had been buried there. It was just one of many fruitless searches. Previous tips led police to a horse farm northwest of Detroit in 2006, a Detroit home in 2004 and a backyard pool two hours north of the city in 2003.

The corrupt union stooge is still dead and that's a good thing.


No he's not. He was discovered alive last year.

All this time, he's been down in the maternity ward of a Detroit hospital organizing labor.

For what it's worth, I got a chance to photograph Jimmy Hoffa in Hartford CT back in 1965

Jimmy Hoffa was an "acquaintance" of mobsters? Wow, is THAT an understatement.

Hoffa WAS a mobster. He invested MILLIONS of dollars of Teamsters pension fund money in organized crime enterprises, especially in Las Vegas.

Hoffa's son is just as much of a MOBSTER as his dad was. The fruit didn't fall far from the tree.
