FBI Ends Search for Jimmy Hoffa

June 19, 2013  | 

The umpteenth dig for Jimmy Hoffa may have unearthed zilch, but the FBI's decades-old search for the famous Teamsters leader is far from over.

"It remains an open investigation," FBI spokesman Simon Shaykhet said Wednesday, shortly after a nearly three-day excavation involving shovels and cadaver dogs was called off in Oakland Township. "As long as cases remain open, the FBI remains committed to the pursuit of justice."

Just before 11 a.m. Wednesday, Detroit's FBI chief Robert Foley III announced that investigators had not found any evidence that Hoffa was buried in an overgrown Oakland Township farm field, where they were led to by a tipster with close ties to the mob.

"After a diligent search ... we did not uncover any evidence relevant to the investigation on James Hoffa," Foley said. "We're very confident of our result here after two days-plus of diligent effort."

OK, I confess. We hid his body in the closet with J.Edgars' dresses and nylons.
