(Newser) – Jimmy Hoffa's mysterious disappearance remains a mystery. Police in Roseville, Michigan, say their much-ballyhooed dig for the former Teamsters boss has turned up nothing, reports CBS Detroit. Acting on a tip, police dug up the concrete beneath a driveway shed in the Detroit suburb, but soil samples turned up no sign of human remains, the department announced today. As far as this tip goes, that means the case is closed.

HEY COPS!!!!! You guys dug up the wrong driveway, he is buried under mine!!!!! (Not really guys, I just need my driveway recovered and I figured they could dig up the old one and put me down a brand new one starting from bedrock this time) So give them a call for me and tell them to look down toward the Grand Blanc/Flint Area

Could be he "went to siht, and the hogs ate him" - like that poor Oregon farmer in today's Newser.
