A mystery may be uncovered – is Jimmy Hoffa buried under General Motor’s RenCen?
According to a new book, “The Weasel: A Double Life in the Mob”, that’s where the famous union leader was buried in 1975. The book, written by Hoffa’s former limo driver turned informant Marvin Elkin (with help from Canadian journalist Adrian Humphrey), says that body was sealed up in the foundation of the RenCen, which was being built at the same time as the disappearance.
So how did Elkin find out about Hoffa’s final resting place? Mobster and union tough guy Anthony Giacalone (also known as Tony Jack) hinted to the location of the body in 1985 as Elkin and other Teamsters were walking across a glass bridge that gave the group a good view of the RenCen.
“When Tony Jack passed the middle point of the bridge . . . he nodded toward the huge tower’s foundation,” Humphreys wrote in the book. “Say good morning to Jimmy Hoffa, boys,” he said.
Elkin also wrote that to finish the RenCen project as quickly as possible, every union carpenter in the Detroit area was brought in to complete the wooden forms that were needed to pour the concrete foundation. And all of this took place around the time of Hoffa’s disappearance.
What do you think? Is it possible that Jimmy Hoffa could be buried under the GM RenCen or is it a hoax to sell a few books? Let us know in the comments section below.
