Investigators are digging up a Michigan field in hopes of discovering the remains of labor leader Jimmy Hoffa, whose disappearance has baffled authorities for decades.
Mobster Tony Zerilli, 85, said earlier this year that the former Teamsters president was buried in a vacant lot in northern Oakland Township, which is about 20 miles from the restaurant where Hoffa was last seen in July 1975, WJBK Fox 2 reports.
Zerilli added that the plan was to move Hoffa's body at a later date, but it never materialized.
"Once he was buried here, he was buried and they let it go," he said. Zerilli was in prison at the time.
Before his disappearance, Hoffa said he was going to meet a suspected member of the Detroit Mafia and a Teamster boss from New Jersey at the Machus Red Fox Restaurant in Bloomfield Hills, Mich.
Hoffa was legally declared dead in 1982, Fox 2 reports.
In 2004, Frank Sheeran, a close friend of Hoffa and a mob hitman, told Fox News that he killed Hoffa inside a Detroit house in 1975. Testing done by former state police detectives found the presence of blood in the floor of the house, matching Sheeran's story that he shot Hoffa and dragged his body down a hallway.
At the time, Sheeran said Hoffa was cremated in a funeral home.

One person was injured in an early-morning shooting at the Potawatomi Bingo Casino, Milwaukee police said.
Sgt. Mark Stanmeyer said the 23-year-old Milwaukee woman was shot in the leg at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday during a fight inside the casino. Her injuries were not life threatening.
A 27-year-old Wauwatosa man from arrested at the scene, Stanmeyer said. He was not immediately charged.
Police did not disclose either person's name.
The casino said in a statement that it closed temporarily after the shooting, but reopened at 9 a.m. Sunday. The statement called the shooting an "extremely isolated event."
Cheryl Anderson of Milwaukee told The Associated Press she was at the slot machines when she heard a shot, which she said was fired at the nearby table games, followed by more shots.
"We all of a sudden heard a bang," Anderson said. "It was a shooting, you could tell. It was so loud like a cannonball. We hit the floor, everybody was panicking. We just stayed there because we didn't know what the heck to do. We saw a guard running, everybody running."
Stanmeyer said the case will be referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office in the coming days for possible charges.
