How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Ex-Mob Prosecutor on Hoffa Dig: ‘That’s the Last One We’ll Ever See’

Ex-Prosecutor Keith Corbett

DETROIT –– So maybe we’ve seen the last Jimmy Hoffa dig for a long long time. Perhaps ever.

On Wednesday, two days after it began, the FBI stopped rooting around for a skeleton in Oakland Township

Former mob federal prosecutor Keith Corbett said he doesn’t expect to see another Hoffa dig in his lifetime, particularly since the feds are unlikely to ever have another ex-mobster of Anthony (Tony Z) Zerilli’s stature come forward again.

“I think that’s the last one,’ he said. “It’s embarrassing for the bureau.”

Over the years, authorities have dug up dirt and concrete looking for Hoffa, missing for 38 years. Each search came up empty.

The latest dig came as a result of a tip from Zerilli, who headed the Detroit mob for a short time and was eventually demoted to capo (captain). He’s sometimes referred to as an underboss.

Zerilli was in prison at the time of Hoffa’s 1975 disappearance in Bloomfield Township. His father headed the Detroit Mafia back then.

Now frail, and sometimes appearing less than sharp, he claimed months ago that Hoffa was whacked with a shovel and buried alive in a shallow grave in a barn on a property at Buell and Adams Road in Oakland Township. The property was once owned by high-ranking mobster Jack Tocco.
