No Human Remains Found in Search for Hoffa in Roseville

Roseville police said Tuesday no human remains were found in soil samples taken last week.

Soil samples taken from a driveway in Roseville, where a tipster alleged Jimmy Hoffa was buried, did not have any signs of human decomposition, Roseville police reported Tuesday.

Roseville police chief James Berlin issued a release that stated following a series of tests at Michigan State University, no signs of human remains were found in the soil samples taken from behind a home Friday.

Berlin added that police department "will be concluding their investigation into the possible interment of a human body upon the property," according to the release.

Police took samples, with the assistance of Michigan Department of Environmental Quality personnel, on the soil at the home located near Common and Gratiot, following a tip that a body was buried at the home. According to The Detroit News, the tip came from a Hoffa biographer that the union leader may be buried at the home.

This is the latest unsuccessful search for Hoffa, who was last seen leaving the former Red Fox Restaurant in Bloomfield Township. Local, state and federal officials have followed up tips that the former Teamsters boss was buried under Giants Stadium in New Jersey, freeways in Detroit and a barn in Milford without any success.
