In Hoffa search, no remains found

ROSEVILLE, Mich. — Authorities drilled through concrete and removed two samples of wet soil and clay in a modest Detroit-area neighborhood Friday in the latest effort to find the remains of Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa, who disappeared in 1975.

No human remains were spotted, but test results may be ready Monday, Roseville Police Chief James Berlin said.

Jimmy Hoffa is presumed dead. Over the years, authorities have dug up a Michigan horse farm, looked under a swimming pool, and pulled up floorboards in their quest for his remains.

The latest search led police, droves of local and national reporters, and dozens of curious onlookers to Patricia Szpunar’s brick ranch-style home in Roseville.

Police in the mostly working- and middle-class community north of Detroit recently received a tip from a man who claimed he saw someone buried there about 35 years ago and that the body possibly belonged to Hoffa.
