FBI Searches Mich. Farm for Clues on Hoffa

MILFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. - For years, there has been a rumor in the neighborhood surrounding a horse farm outside Detroit where organized crime figures used to meet. Deb Koskovich heard it two decades ago from a neighbor when she moved next door: Jimmy Hoffa was buried there.
FBI agents investigating the Teamsters leader's 1975 disappearance from a restaurant in Oakland County's Bloomfield Township, about 20 miles away, were at the farm for a second day Thursday.
Asked if they were looking for Hoffa's remains, FBI Agent Dawn Clenney said, "Could be," and declined to comment further on the agents' presence.
A law enforcement official in Washington said the search was based on information developed several years ago and verified more recently.
The information indicated there was a high level of suspicious activity on the farm the day Hoffa vanished, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing. A backhoe appeared near a barn that organized crime members had used for meetings, but that location was never used again after Hoffa disappeared, the official said.

I thought he was buried under the turf at Giants Stadium..... that would be crazy if they found him
