(Newser) – Police will take a soil sample from beneath a driveway in Roseville, Michigan, on Friday in the hopes of solving the Jimmy Hoffa mystery, reports the Detroit Free Press. An unidentified tipster says the former Teamster boss might have been buried there after he went missing in 1975. Authorities have gone on several wild goose chases before, notes CNN, but the latest tip struck them as genuine.

“We received information from an individual who saw something,” says the local police chief. “The information seemed credible, so we decided to follow up on it.” An initial scan by radar turned up an "anomaly" at the site last week, prompting the more thorough testing this week. "It could be anybody down there," cautions the chief. "Could be nobody. It could be a dog."

You mean to say that Jimmy isn't buried under the playing field at The Meadowlands?

How much more $$$ is the FBI going to waste on a Mob patsy? We know he's dead, I could care less where.
