A new book is out which claims that Jimmy Hoffa is buried under the big tower at GM HQ. :lol:

Hoffa's former driver makes the claims that a Detroit mob boss named Tony Jack once quipped in '85 to say hello to Jimmy Hoffa as he pointed at the tower's foundation.


I wonder, with modern technology, if it would be possible to detect what was left of a body buried in concrete like that without having to tear anything up.

So did NCIS. I'd tend to prefer to believe whatever the Mythbusters found!

The mythbusters segment was about the story was buried in/under Giants Stadium, which was demolished a while back. This is a new claim that he's in the concrete under GM's headquarters. They used some ground penetrating radar and found no anamolies, from what I gather.

Whether it would be possible to similiarly probe the concrete under GM, I don't know.

Reminds me of a joke that Carnac the Magnificent (aka Johnny Carson) did:

A: He understands

Q: Where Jimmy Hoffa?
