Hoffa's Last Call
A small stocky Italian man dressed in a dark blue shirt, blue slacks, and a pair of black Gucci loafers was standing outside a restaurant in Bloomfield, Michigan, late one afternoon. He was impatiently waiting for an important business meeting, but his associates were running extremely late.
He walked to a nearby hardware store to make a phone call to his wife. He wondered if he had been misinformed. Shortly after the call a dark maroon Mercury picked him up, and he was never to be seen again. The phone call his wife received was the last time she would ever speak to her husbands.
The man was James Riddle Hoffa and many know the story of his disappearance. But who killed him, why, and where his body is, are the questions still left a mystery to many federal investigators and his family to this day.
Before one can understand the all issues involved in the day of the disappearance of the most famous labor leader: Jimmy Hoffa, one must know and understand who he is, where he came from and the people he had interactions with during his reign as president of the Teamsters Union.
