Expert: Officials should reopen search for Jimmy Hoffa’s body; could be buried in NJ

Posted: Updated:

An expert on mobster Jimmy Hoffa says U.S. law enforcement should reopen the search for his body, saying he could be buried in New Jersey.

Hoffa was murdered in Detroit back on July 30, 1975.

Dan Moldea, a best-selling author, wants police to reopen the case. He claims Hoffa's body was brought to a dump in the Garden State.

According to Moldea, the notorious mobster was buried there inside a 55-gallon drum.

He's calling for police to release the FBI files and search the dump. 

Rumors have also swirled that Hoffa was buried under the old Giants Stadium.
