A cold case research project claims that the body of Jimmy Hoffa may be buried under the former Milwaukee Brewers baseball stadium.
The group, called Case Breakers, shared the findings in a press release on Wednesday.

"The alleged burial site is next to the current Milwaukee Brewers stadium, American Family Field, where they believe Hoffa’s body lies in a spot under where the demolished stadium’s third-base line previously stood," the New York Post reported.
"Jim Zimmerman, a 13-year member of Case Breakers and a former police officer, is credited with locating the ace of spades playing card which they say was written by a dying police sergeant believed to be involved with Hoffa’s kidnapping," it added.

"Independent sources in three states convinced the volunteer investigators that CSI forensics will reveal Hoffa’s remains at a little league field, in the shadow of Milwaukee’s MLB stadium," the press release stated, according to Fox News.
"Three credible witnesses are said to have claimed that six years before the demolition of Milwaukee County Stadium, Hoffa’s body was moved from another location and 'secretly buried in 1995 under this old stadium’s 3rd base,'" it noted.
The group has proposed to work with law enforcement officials and the FBI to dig at the site, according to the press release.
Hoffa was released from prison over bribery and fraud charges and sought his former role before he allegedly died at the hands of the mafia.
He was not legally declared dead until 1982. Several previous searches have failed to produce his body.
The new findings have historians and investigators curious once again over whether the longtime passing of Hoffa's body could now be discovered to finally determine his place of death.
