Blood Is Not That of Hoffa, Officials Say

February 15, 2005|From Times Wire Reports

Blood found on the floor of a Detroit home is not that of Jimmy Hoffa, investigators said, ruling out what had looked like one of the most promising recent leads in the disappearance of the Teamsters leader 30 years ago.

Authorities had ripped up floorboards last May at a house where Delaware Teamsters official Frank Sheeran said he shot Hoffa to death.

Police in the Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Township received a report from the FBI's crime lab concluding that the blood on the floorboards was not Hoffa's.
