Hoffa’s final hideaway?

The week's news at a glance.

Detroit

FBI agents swarmed over an 80-acre horse farm this week, acting on a tip that former Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa was buried there. An FBI spokesman said the agents were particularly interested in a barn on the property where Hoffa had allegedly met with organized-crime figures just before vanishing in 1975. A lawyer for Rolland McMaster, a former Hoffa associate who owned the farm in 1975, said the FBI was unlikely to find what it was looking for. “That farm was looked at with a fine-toothed comb in the ’70s,” said lawyer Mayer Morganroth. “There’s nothing there.”
