HOFFA BARN PAYOUT
(2007-04-04)
(wgvu) - The owners of an Oakland County
farm have been paid 160-thousand dollars to replace their barn.
The barn was torn down during a fruitless two-week search for
Jimmy Hoffa's remains last summer.
Records show the agency paid another 65-thousand dollars to
excavators, anthropologists and other contractors involved in the
project.
The 225-thousand dollar price tag for the search doesn't include
salary or travel costs for the agents involved in the dig.
Investigators think Hoffa was killed by the mob to prevent him
from reclaiming the Teamsters presidency. He was last seen alive on
July 30th, 1975. He was scheduled to meet a New Jersey Teamsters
boss and a Detroit mafia captain on the day he disappeared.
