The FBI searched under the New Jersey Bridge for the remains of Jimmy Hoffa last month
The FBI has obtained a search warrant to conduct a “site investigation” under the Pulaski Skyway, FBI Special Agent Mara Schneider of the Detroit Field Office said in a statement on Friday.
“On October 25 and 26, FBI staff in the Newark and Detroit field offices completed the investigation and this data is currently being analyzed,” Schneider said. “Because the affidavit in support of the search warrant was sealed by the court, we cannot provide any additional information. “
The FBI used radar equipment to conduct the two-day underground search on private property, the source told CNN.
One of the most powerful union leaders at a time when unions wielded great influence over elections – and were notoriously linked to organized crime – Hoffa was kicked out of the organized labor movement when he went to federal prison in 1967 for jury. forgery and fraud.
President Richard Nixon pardoned him in 1971 on the condition that he did not attempt to re-enter the labor movement until 1980. But Hoffa attempted to regain control of the union, angering his rivals.
The FBI searched various locations in their efforts to locate Hoffa’s remains, but always arrived empty-handed.
