Is Jimmy Hoffa Buried in Giants Stadium?

By November 8, 2003

Follow me on:

TV's "Mythbusters" Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman left an urban legend standing (or should I say lying?) when they failed to prove one way or the other whether murdered Teamster boss James R. Hoffa is buried in Giants Stadium. Hoffa disappeared from a restaurant parking lot in Oakland County, Michigan in 1975 and was declared dead in 1983, but his body has never been found. A quarter-century of urban folklore locates the remains in Giants Stadium, the Florida Everglades, a New Jersey landfill, a Central Sanitation shredder, and buried in cement beneath various freeways, bridges and buildings from Michigan to New York. Back in Giants Stadium, Savage and Hyneman admitted their results were inconclusive because they weren't able to check every possible location in the time allotted. Footage of the investigation will air next month on the Discovery Channel. (Via Associated Press)

I like the conspiracy that he went into hiding in Indiana with a African-American go-go dancer.

(2) Michael says:

I know where he is. Someone in my family was apart of the disposal. It has been a family secret. It is funny to hear all of the rumors because when you know the truth… you see how some of the rumors have bits of truth… but not placed together correctly. There were only a few who knew… and they are all dead including my family member who helped. However, he did not die without telling his story to another family member… whom has recently passed.
He was killed… and his body could be found.
I am really surprised that no one has found him as of yet. This was one of the best cover ups in our history. Most of the rumors were started to confuse people. The funny part is how close some of them are… but wrong just enough to eliminate the idea from being valid.
When I was told (18 years old) back in the early 80′s… it came with a warning. At the time, I was so scared the idea of mentioning it was out of the question. Since then I have documented the information and keep it secure.
One day When I am gone… my family will have the same info to do as they wish. Until then… the secret is safe with me.

To Michael,

You’re starting to believe your own lies!

(6) Annette says:

To Michael.

I dont believe that for a second because if someone knew where he was then they would be sure to come forward for the publicity. i know a great great niece of his and her family has no clue what happened. So its hard to believe you would and you personally had nothin to do with it. But if saying that you know helps you get through your days then good luck to you.

I saww the hoffa killing in downtown Detroit in April of 1977. The FBI is aware and the case is still under investigation. Soon the remains will be uncovered and I hope this will put some closure to the family and a end to everyoness thought of not knowing what or where Jimmy Hoffas remains are and what really happen to him that day in the Ren-Cen in downtown Detroit, Michigan, April 15th, 1977. The world will finally know the truth soon!!!. Mike Y

(10) Jimmy Hoffa says:

Im still alive. I am in witness protection and had a sex change operation. I am a fitness instructor in Iowa. My new persona is awesome. As soon as my current boyfriend finds out that I was once a man. I will have to disappear again for my safety. Go Teamsters Go

(11) don't matter who I am says:

To the recent post by Jimmy Hoffa,

Great to know you are okay.


January 8, 2009 at 8:41 pm
(12) Vinny says:

You are a real moron Michael.If you knew where Jimmy Hoffa was, you wouldn’t be concerned about repercussions for revealing this information since pretty much all people involved are basically history and the mob which would have had anything to do with this is ancient history. Shame on you either way because his family doesn’t need to have wounds torn open with your flagrant bragging remarks on you claiming to know where their key to closure could be. And Im Mike needs to learn how to spell.What happened with the FBI investigation you fruit cake?! Yes this gentleman passed long ago but what the hell happened to people’s sensitivity for the value of life and respect for the dead? Youse are all freaking animals like the ones whom made the dude disappear!

(15) Justin Closs says:

So the whole “Mythbusters” thing about never finishing it and left it lying. They may not have been in the right place all we have ever heard is its in Giants stadium there is the San Francisco Giants. When they hear of a mobster most people think the New England area. But if the people who buried it wanted it to never be found they would have figured that and took it to the opposite side of America to the San Fran. Giants stadium, in the middle of gang territories.

(16) awseome says:

Hey this is Awesome. Jimmy Hoffa is buried im my pool. He was part of the construction crew and fell into the cement and was rolled over by a steam roller. This is the solution to the dissaperance of Jimmy hofa.

March 7, 2009 at 8:51 pm
(17) Alyssa says:

To Michael: Check yourself into therapy.

To “jimmy Hoffa”: Same to you seeing as that it is 2009 even though your post is in 2008. you would be in your 90s. you would be too old to be anything remotely close to a fitness instructor.

To everyone else…eventually the case will be solved they’re coming out with new technology all the time…..and no one will know what actually happened until there is a confirmed story from the FBI or to whom ever solves the case with legit proof. so everyone quit making up stories. You must have something better to do with your life.

(18) Pete. says:

Wow. You took the “Jimmy Hoffa” comment seriously? How could you not understand that he’s just bing stupid and funny and making a joke. “he would be like 90, way to old to be a fitness instructor” wow, way to analytically over look the funny sarcasm.

April 16, 2009 at 3:52 pm
(19) Jimmy Hoffa says:

To Alyssa: How dare you underestimate my abilities!?! While in hiding, I also stopped by Area 51 and picked up some age defying tonic. That stuff really works! May I interest you in a gym membership?

Govorment called the hit and mafia carried out the job.game of cat and mouse. Bobby kennedy puts hoffa in jail.hoffa gets out. Jfk gets shot. Hoffa disapears. I have more info but this is a summary. I swear im not crazy I know what i heard and i cant stop searching. funny thing is i was at a place in oakland county about 2 weeks ago and It was like someone whispered “Hoffa” into my ear. I am familiar with the hoffa disaperance but never really cared. i mean he was before my time. so this was odd. for two weeks now i havent been able to sleep and barley eat. I beleive it was the governments plot to kill hoffa now and yes maybe the mob was involved maybe for money or imunity on their other crimes. who else can get close enough to him then other than his own friends and coworkers. this place in oakland county has all the tips in one area. It has a house over looking water with an unerground pool down the hill it has gravel pits it was a horse farm, it also raise black angus cows for slaughter and sale, the original landscaper jen jenson loved to land scape meadowlands. this horse farm had a hidden cottage that held meeting up until 1975. goverment and famouse people knew of this place. it was a secret. It is Haven Hill located in Highland recreation state park. this was Edsel fords nerve retreat. here are ties to a car compactor and turned into a hubcap. anyway edsel fords son was Henery ford II who worked with mcnamara who was working under BOBBY Kennedy. Henery grew up vacationing at this secret place of his fathers and henry has ties to bobby kennedy in 1975 also. this place is not on a horse farm in milford but on state land butting up to milford rd withn a horse farm gravel pits, an underground pool meadowlands and government ties. this place was visited by linberg family and edison. it was secret. and a part of our history yet the sate is letting it go with ony the help of volentiers to save it.  secret meetings. and ties to ford motor company. its like a RIDDLE and i just put all the puzzle peices to only one spot in oakland county mi.oh and not to mention after the 6th time out to that area in these two weeks myself and my kids and brother inlaw as almost hit by a man flying around the corner driving a newer tan and maroon murcury grand marquise.  haha that was something.  but by time we came around the corner to confront this man on his drivinvg he had already parked his car and dissapeared into the woods.  he was obviously not dressed for a hike in the woods and mid to late 70s with HUGE old eyeglases on.  I may be going crazy but something is possesing me to look at this area and the 29 acre field in waterford mi.  thats where im heading today.  thanks for listening.Stephanie in michigan

It is not a matter of who killed JAMES R. HOFFA. The F.B.I. Already knows who done it. One of the killers is still alive. The F.B.I. has been informed of Hoffa’s remains in downtown Detroit and just a matter of time with the new technology & important eye ear witness the WAYNE COUNTY SHERIFF. & DETROIT POLICE team will spearhead the investigation and I will show the world that im not crazy and that Hoffa was in fact killed by the Mob. Right Thomas Andretta. Remember me? You told me 35 years ago and I qoute: “YOU BETTER KEEP MOVIN OR I WILL BE NEXT” I CALL YOU MR. LOOK OUT MAN. YOV WERE ONE OF THE THREE HIT MEN. ~THE F.B.I.

(32) Dr0wssap says:

I work for the Wisconsin Department of Corrections medical examiners office. Jimmy Hoffa’s body was found when the autopsy was preformed on Jeffrey Dahmer after his death back in 1994. It still has yet to be determined if Hoffa was just “hiding out” in Dahmer’s gut or if Jeffery actually ate Jimmy. Yes folks the mystery deepens

Hey, you uys are insane and most properly on crack or something! Have respect man, this guy dissapeared, the Kennedeys got wacked, so, where’s the connection? Unions, mobsters, payback for vote rigging? Who the hell knows and who the hell cares? The Hoffa family would like to have his remains back, the mob wants it just where it is, missing, who knows where his remains are? Have respect for the dead and the family, please guys!

Dummies… He was shipped out of the shipyard, and thrown into one of those garbage disposals in the ships, and went out to sea.

Jimmy Hoffa was found a number of years ago alive and well at the time. Tammy Faye Baker took her makeup off and there he was.

April 4, 2010 at 12:19 pm
(37) flylowguy says:

Hoffa Had an illegitimate son who knows the whole story.
If you want to know what happened, talk to Pee Wee Herman. He was about to come out with the story but they found out and arranged some bad press about him in a skin flick theater.
Actually Hoffa lived in Argentina until some years ago when he died of natural causes. He shared an apartment in a high rise for a while with Sam Giancana’s ex-girlfriend who was Kennedy’s mistress. Judith Exner was bankrolled by Howard Hughes and paid off J. Edgar Hoover to leave them all alone: Bobby, Sam, Jimmy, Howard and most of the rest. They somehow didn’t include poor Marilyn Monroe.
Yes, really.

I always heard he was buried in Highway 696 in Farmington Hills, MI after going through the garbage compresser at the Machus Red Fox Restaurant. Doesn’t matter. He’s somewhere forever Heaven or Hell.

April 4, 2010 at 2:18 pm
(41) Reporter says:

The real truth is that Hoffa’s body will never be found as it was taken to a meat packing plant, ground up, and became McDonald’s hamburgers. I’m lovin it.

My associates brought this thread to my attention and, as the living legacy of Jimmy Sr. I now find the time is right to let all that I know be made public. Shortly, you’ll be hearing about my resignation from The Teamsters. It’s an incredibably hard decision on my part, but, my family comes first. I am not at liberty to disclose anything at this time other, than to let all thgat cared know, that my father’s ashes will be returned to us shortly. Thank you for understanding that this is all I can say.

(47) Paolo says:

Micheal and Ricco are indeed telling the truth. My cousin a couple of times removed was laying in wait for Jimmy with some members of the Bonnano crew. He’s in Michigan somewhere, and he was buried, not chewed up, so there are traces there to be found. One day the truth will out.

November 19, 2010 at 6:08 pm
(48) AEM says:

To Michael Y,

You state 1977 twice in your claim to know what happened to Hoffa. With respect, the year of his disappearance was 1975.

I’m surprised that the FBI never oversaw the demolition of Giants Stadium. I guess they truly believe he wasn’t in there.

(50) Play in UGP says:

When I was little the neighborhood I used to play in there was a place called the union gospel press. This place is a HUGE fortress with an escape tunnel that runs about 1/4 mile to a church basement.
The mafia of the area would always hold their meetings there because the place was so secure.
Later on in years I used to play in the abandoned fortress and I knew the care taker of the property told me that he knew where JH was buried and he took me to a spot in the concrete and brick driveway area next to a building where there was a 3 x 5 foot area where the concrete was different and not the same, this is the spot he said.

Now the building had been totally refurbished into luxury condos, I stopped by there and the sales people were kind enough to give me a tour, I found the spot and it is still there.

Yo Yo Yo,

(52) Anonymous says:

I cannot believe that some of you whack jobs are actually pretending to be dead people. Why would you idiots go through with something like that knowing that their families are trying to piece everything together. “Jimmy Hoffa” dude your an idiot theres no way in hell your a gym instructor and theres no way in hell you could have gotten into Area 51 without getting your ass blown apart by the security they have hidden all around the compound. Even though you cant see them trust me they are there.

January 25, 2011 at 2:06 pm
(53) Michael says:

To the gentleman that said I dont know what I am saying, Just because someone disappears one year does not mean that life stops within that year? People are kidnapped held for long piriods of time, reappears and are killed. thats what happen to J. Hoffa. He was not killed immediately

February 19, 2011 at 7:31 pm
(54) Ken Ranger says:

I am Closely kin to the Hoffas. I am appalled that some of you are so cold. Just because this happened years ago and it is common knowledge don’t make it right to joke. What if it was a member of your family? All jokes aside, and I’m not trying to act rude, but you should be ashamed.

April 15, 2011 at 1:41 pm
(55) Col. Bat Guano says:

I really doubt that if anyone really knew where he was buried that they would post anything on the internet about it. If they did, they would be more inclined to tell where he is because it had been weighing on their minds for so long. Not just to brag about it. Its been so long anyway that it doesnt even matter where he is. It would be interesting to know, sure. But its trivial. Useless info.

September 6, 2011 at 5:54 pm
(56) Too says:

Didn’t some guy already admit to killing and cremating Hoffa on his death bed??? I swear I thought that was common knowledge by now.

hey all I here h
e was disolved in a barrel of acid…..never to be found.

(58) Theron says:

I’ve heard of the Giant Stadium theory but I have never heard the “road” theory. How gross to even think Hoffa’s body parts buried in the concrete dividers that split I-75 or any other road. I think that the reason we can’t find him is because the body parts were cut too small. Hoffa was a man that lived by the sword and subsequently died by it.
