The James R. Hoffa Theory Revisted As Giant Stadium Braces for Wrecking Ball

One of the more improbable theories about Teamster James R. Hoffa — that he’s buried under the west end zone at Giant Stadium — is popping up one more time for old time sake as demolition teams get ready to knock down the stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Rumors of the Giant Stadium burial reached a feverish pitch after a self-described mob hit man Donald “Tony the Greek” Frankos mentioned it in a 1989 Playboy interview, according to the Associated Press.

But retired FBI agent Jim Kossler, who worked the case in the 1980s, said the agency had dismissed the possibility by the time the Playboy interview was printed, according to the Associated Press.

“What he was telling us couldn’t have happened because he either couldn’t have been there or he was in jail at the time,” Kossler said, according to AP.

AP reported that the FBI says it has no plans to oversee the demolition.
