A chronology of the events surrounding the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, former president of the Teamsters union:
July 30, 1975
— Hoffa leaves his home on Lake Orion around 1 pm and makes a stop to visit a friend in Pontiac. He arrives at the Machus Red UKTN restaurant in Bloomfield Township in Oakland County at around 2pm to meet famed Detroit mob enforcer Anthony “Tony Jack” Giacalone and alleged New Jersey mob Anthony “Tony Pro” Provenzano. Hoffa calls his wife, Josephine, about 2:15 p.m. from a pay phone and tells her that no one showed up for his appointment. Hoffa, 62, is never seen or heard from again.
August 8, 1975
— The FBI receives a search warrant for Hoffa’s car, which was found in the restaurant’s parking lot. They find fingerprints of family friend Charles “Chuckie” O’Brien on a 7-Up bottle under the right front seat.
September 2, 1975
— A grand jury meets in Detroit to investigate Hoffa’s disappearance.
— More than 200 FBI agents have been assigned to the case in New Jersey, Detroit and at least four other cities. Over the period, more than 70 volumes of files have been compiled, containing more than 16,000 pages. Six suspects in the disappearance, including Provenzano and Anthony Giacalone, have been convicted on unrelated charges.
1982: Self-confessed mob killer Charles Allen, who was imprisoned with Hoffa and participated in the federal witness protection program, tells a U.S. Senate committee that Hoffa was murdered on Provenzano’s orders. Hoffa’s body was “ground into small pieces, shipped to Florida and thrown into a swamp,” Allen said.
— Hoffa has been declared legally dead.
– Self-described hit man Donald “Tony the Greek” Frankos claims that Hoffa is buried under Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. The FBI finds no evidence to support the claim.
— The head of the FBI’s organized crime unit says in a court document that he believes a decision can be made to prosecute someone within the next two years.
— The FBI says it will refer the case to the Oakland County prosecutor’s office for possible charges. John Bell, a special agent in charge of the FBI agency in Detroit, says the federal case was thwarted because of the long time since Hoffa disappeared.
August 29, 2002
– Oakland County prosecutor says new UKTN evidence in Hoffa’s disappearance is insufficient to bring criminal charges.
— Bloomfield Township police tear up the floor of a Detroit home where a former Hoffa ally Frank Sheeran claims to have killed him. The FBI crime lab would eventually conclude that the blood found on the floorboards did not belong to Hoffa.
– New Jersey hit man Richard “The Iceman” Kuklinski, who died in March, claims he killed Hoffa and put his body in a car sold for scrap. Kuklinski’s book, “The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer,” claims he was paid $40,000 for the murder.
May 17, 2006
— The FBI begins searching for Hoffa’s remains at a horse ranch in Milford Township in Oakland County, northwest of Detroit, but ends the search after finding nothing.
June 17, 2013
— The FBI sees enough merit in a noted mafia captain’s tip to once again break out the digging equipment to search for Hoffa’s remains in an Oakland Township field about 40 miles north of Detroit. No remains of Hoffa have been found
Nov 19, 2021
