FBI agents arrived in Jersey City with a search warrant at a plot of dirt and gravel the size of a Little League diamond below the Pulaski Skyway on October 25th and 26th to conduct a “site survey” after a man on his deathbed claimed he’d buried Hoffa in a steel drum at the PJP Landfill – now Skyway Park – the newspaper reported.

“FBI personnel from the Newark and Detroit field offices completed the survey and that data is currently being analyzed,” Special Agent Mara R. Schneider, an FBI spokeswoman, said in a statement.

“Because the affidavit in support of the search warrant was sealed by the court, we are unable to provide any additional information.”

In 2015, the New York Daily News wrote about the possibility of Hoffa being buried underneath the skyway, which the Detroit Free Press touched on two years ago.

Hoffa, who had been linked to organized crime and had been convicted of jury tampering, attempted bribery, and fraud in the 60s, vanished from a Bloomfield diner on July 30th, 1975 and was legally declared dead exactly seven years later in 1982.

The Pulaski Skyway connects Jersey City to Newark and also runs through Kearny.
