FBI special agent James Fitzgerald, who has led the investigation for more than 20 years, says they’re following up on several leads after testing hit a dead end in April when his team searched, hundreds of yards underground, an excavator tearing up soil in soil at a Detroit-area horse racetrack where they had suspicions the body of Hoffa may be buried.

(Fitzgerald) “We are currently in the process of evaluating some of the information we have developed in this investigation.”

And Fitzgerald says there are new leads now that medical examiners have tested blood in a cup belonging to the Teamsters rep’s personal doctor, who died two months before Hoffa went missing in 1975.

More than 30 years after he vanished, FBI agents believe they may have found Hoffa’s body in the ground behind the home of a suspected mobster.

Eugene Quaglia, founder of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. He believes a tip from a convicted killer could point to the grave of the former Teamsters union president.

(Quaglia) “But you don’t throw a 20-year-old unsolved homicide away.”
