FBI agents dig up this Michigan field in search of a body. The nearly four-decade search for Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa may end on this suburban Detroit property, 20 miles from where he was last seen alive in 1975. Authorities believe he was murdered by the mob and have checked thousands of leads over the years. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MICHAEL BOUCHARD, OAKLAND COUNTY SHERIFF SAYING: "It's my fondest hope that we can give that closure, not just to the Hoffa family, but also to the community. To stop tearing that scab off with every new lead and bring some conclusion." Reputed mobster Anthony Zerilli, who was in prison when Hoffa went missing, wrote that Hoffa was dragged from a car, bound and gagged, hit with a shovel and buried alive in a barn on the property. (SOUNDBITE) (English) REPORTER ASKING TONY ZERILLI, REPUTED MOBSTER AND HOFFA FRIEND: "If you had money, how much money would you bet Mr. Hoffa's body is out there under that dirt under that field?" TONY ZERILLI, HOFFA FRIEND RESPONDING: "All depends how much money I have. If I had a million dollars I'd bet a million dollars." Hoffa led the union from 1957 to 1971 and was imprisoned for fraud and jury tampering. Authorities believe he was killed by organized crime leaders to prevent him from regaining control of the Teamsters.
