If you're looking for the bones of Teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa, you may need look no further than the General Motors headquarters. According to a new book by Hoffa's former driver and mob goon Marvin Elkind, Hoffa's corpse rests below the cement foundation of the Renaissance Center. Elkind co-wrote Weasel: A Double Life in the Mob with a Canadian journalist, and according to one passage, reported mob boss Anthony Giacalone told Teamsters delegates to "Say good morning to Jimmy Hoffa, boys," as he nodded to the foundation of the Renaissance Center during a conference in Detroit in 1985.

Thin evidence? Sure, but the news is just as credible as any of the other theories concerning Hoffa's dissappearance. From a burial under the end zone of the old Giants Stadium in New Jersey to cremation at a Hamtramck waste disposal facility, plenty of urban legends surround the union leader's vanishing act. Something tells us no one's going to be ripping up the floor boards at the RenCenter looking for musty bones anytime soon, however.

      Everyone knows he's buried under GIants stadium, they reburied him under the new Giants stadium. Just to keep it real.

      Actually, Jimmy Hoffa was last seen sipping Martinis and talking with Judge Crater and Elvis Presley while riding in the passenger cabin of a Lockheed twin some place over the western Pacific. Amelia Earhart was pilot.

      The ren Cen started construction May 1 1973... Hoffa disappeared July 30, 1975... How exactly did they get him under the foundation, which would have been down at least a year before he came up missing? Yet another 2 bit mobster trying to generate sales of his book.
