In an interesting application of remote sensing, ground penetrating radar was used last week to try to locate Jimmy Hoffa, missing since 1975. The latest chapter in the on-going cold-case investigation took place outside Detroit, where GPR was used to look for a possible body buried under a suburban driveway.
What do you people expect? His middle name is RIDDLE. (Truly, as in “James Riddle Hoffa”). As Dave Berry would say: I did NOT make this up!
Later, a sediment sample was taken for analysis.
The seemingly never-ending search for the remains of missing Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa hit another dead end Tuesday when soil results taken from the grounds of a home in Michigan showed no evidence that human remains were buried on the property.
(okay, so this is actually a photo of GPR being used for archaeological purposes in Jordan, and not a picture of Detroit. But it makes the post more archaeological).
