MacReady’s Top 5 Disappearances: #3 – A Man Named Hoffa

On July 30, 1975, James Riddle "Jimmy" Hoffa disappeared – Never to be seen again.

His life story was fascinating to say the least, but would ultimately be overshadowed by the mysterious circumstances surrounding his disappearance. When mapping out the timeline of Jimmy Hoffa’s disappearance, it’s hard to distinguish fact from fiction.

Since Hoffa’s disappearance, every wise guy from Sicily to The Bronx has claimed his or her involvement - A Dago fairytale grandfathers could tell their grandchildren. “Did I ever tell you that I shook hands with Hoffa?” Did I ever tell you I know where Hoffa’s body is?” Did I ever tell you... and so on and so on.

Hoffa once said, “To the best of my recollection, I must recall on my memory, I cannot remember.”

One thing can be certain, the people who truly know what happened to Hoffa on that day have done a great job of following his quote, cause they sure aren’t talking.
