Jimmy Hoffa's Body Was Reportedly Fed Through A Wood Chipper

There's no point in looking for the body of Teamster leader Jimmy Hoffa, who disappeared in 1975, at least according to a law enforcement source "close to the investigation."

DNAinfo reports that Hoffa was "garroted by Anthony 'Tony Pro' Provenzano, a notorious New York mobster" in Inkster, Mich., and fed into a wood chipper.

The story comes just days after the FBI called off a search for Hoffa's body underneath "a concrete slab in a barn in Oakland Township, Mich.," according to the Associated Press.

"We did not uncover any evidence relevant to the investigation on James Hoffa," Robert Foley, head of the FBI in Detroit, said. "I am very confident of our result here after two-days-plus of diligent effort. As of this point, we'll be closing down the excavation operation."

The FBI began its search after a tip from alleged Mafia captain Tony Zerilli.

"Right now the case remains open," Foley said after the third day of the most recent search. "At this point, if we do get logical leads and enough probable cause that warrant the resources to do an investigation, then we'll continue to do so."

Hoffa has been missing since he was last seen outside an Oakland County restaurant 38 years ago. - THP

'Ghost Hunters' make off with lots of liquor

Wanted: Possible ghost-hunting liquor thieves.

Police are looking for two young white men in their late teens or early 20s who broke into Bobby Mackey’s
Music World about midnight Friday, and made off with $3,000 to $5,000 worth of booze.

From what the owners could see on the surveillance video, the perpetrators poured some of the liquor into containers, which they stuffed into four backpacks. The thieves also stuffed several 12-ounce bottles of wine in their backpacks.

The thieves made off with Crystal Head vodka, Captain Morgan rum, Makers Mark bourbon, Jagermeister hard liquor, Schnapps flavored liquor and several different vodka flavors, Seifert said.

“We found about 30 to 40 empty bottles on the bar,” Seifert said.

“We checked our sound equipment, our instruments and our merchandise, and nothing else was missing,” said Denise Mackey, the bar’s general manager.

The suspects also pried open the front panel of an automatic teller machine in the Texas-style roadhouse, but there was no money in the machine, Mackey said.

Seifert said the culprits may have been ghost hunters, largely because of the honky tonk nightspot’s
reputation “as a ghost place.” For years, people have claimed the Texas-style roadhouse is haunted.

In the 1800s, the building was used as a slaughterhouse. Legend has it that the head of Pearl Bryan, a 22-year-old pregnant woman who was murdered in 1896, was disposed of in a well used to drain blood from the slaughterhouse.

More recently, the nationally televised “Ghost Adventures” and “Ghost Hunters” have hunted spirits at Bobby Mackey’s.

“We always tell people, ‘Come for the ghosts, but stay for the music,”’ Seifert said. “We’ll offer a free ghost tour for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the thieves.”


China Polluters Can Receive Death Penalty

Chinese authorities have given courts the powers to hand down the death penalty in serious pollution cases, state media said, as the government tries to assuage growing public anger at environmental desecration.

An increasingly affluent urban population has begun to object to China's policy of growth at all costs, which has fuelled the economy for three decades, with the environment emerging as a focus of concern and protests.

A new judicial interpretation which took effect on Wednesday would impose "harsher punishments" and tighten "lax and superficial" enforcement of the country's environmental protection laws, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

"In the most serious cases the death penalty could be handed down," it said.

"With more precise criteria for convictions and sentencing, the judicial explanation provides a powerful legal weapon for law enforcement, which is expected to facilitate the work of judges and tighten punishments for polluters," Xinhua said, citing a government statement.

"All force should be mobilized to uncover law-breaking clues of environmental pollution in a timely way," it added.

Previous promises to tackle China's pollution crisis have had mixed results, and enforcement has been a problem at the local level, where governments often heavily rely on tax receipts from polluting industries under their jurisdiction.

Protests over pollution have unnerved the stability-obsessed ruling Communist Party.

Thousands of people took to the streets in the southwestern city of Kunming last month to protest against the planned production of a chemical at a refinery.

Severe air pollution in Beijing and large parts of northern China this winter have added to the sense of unease among the population.

Human rights groups say China executes thousands of people a year, more than all other countries combined. The death penalty is often imposed for corruption and other economic crimes. - Scientific American
