Federal agents began digging up a field in northern Oakland Township Monday in hopes of finding the remains of Jimmy Hoffa. The former Teamsters president's disappearance on July 30, 1975, is one of America's greatest unsolved mysteries. Mafia underboss Tony Zerilli told WDIV in an exclusive interview earlier this year that Jimmy Hoffa was buried in a shallow grave in this field. Zerilli was second in command with the Detroit mafia. He says he was told by a mafia enforcer that Hoffa was abducted at a restaurant in Bloomfield Township and brought to the area on Buell Road in Oakland Township and buried.
