Jimmy Hoffa mystery carries over until Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

OAKLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The location of former Teamsters head Jimmy Hoffa's body will apparently remain a mystery for at least one more night.

Federal agents who spent Monday digging around in a suburban Detroit field where reputed Mafia captain Tony Zerilli says Hoffa's remains are buried plan to resume their search Tuesday.

Zerilli told Detroit TV station WDIV in February that he knew where Hoffa was buried.

The search site is in Oakland Township, about 25 miles north of Detroit.

Hoffa was Teamsters president from 1957 to 1971.

He disappeared in 1975 after going to a Detroit-area restaurant for what was supposed to be a meeting with a New Jersey Teamsters boss and a Detroit Mafia captain.
