  1. Jimmy Hoffa was a renowned labor union boss and was the leader of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters until his disappearance. He was involved in several illegal rackets due to which he developed a relationship with the Italian Mafia. Jimmy was charged with organized crime with bribery, conspiracy, as well as mail fraud among others as his major offenses.

    James Riddle Hoffa was a people’s man and he was very vocal about the plight of the laborers and how he could help them have better lives. The IBT grew multiple folds during his reign and became the largest union of America. However, his illustrious life came to a mysterious end.

    On July 30th, 1975, Jimmy Hoffa disappeared never to be found. The police work hard on his case but never found his body leading to the court closing his case and announcing him legally dead in 1982. No one truly knows what happened to him other than that he went to meet Mafia boss Anthony Giacalone and his associate Anthony Provenzano.

    The meeting was meant to take place in the Machus Red Fox restaurant in Detroit. Hoffa reached the location on time but the Mafia members were not present on the spot, which enraged and agitated Jimmy to the point he called home and promised to come back for some food. According to some sources Jimmy left the location by 2:45 but his car was still parked there. There were reports that Jimmy was last seen with some men in a maroon car.

    In the book, “I Heard You Paint Houses”, Frank Sheeran claims to have killed Hoffa. However, this has been disputed and not deemed to be true. Whatever the case may have been it is still unsure who killed Hoffa and how he was killed.
