Workers Demolish Barn at Hoffa Search Site
May 24, 2006 -- A crew from a Detroit-area demolition company has destroyed a barn on a horse farm where the search for the remains of labor leader Jimmy Hoffa continues.
Workers used an excavating machine to rip chunks out of the barn for about three hours, eventually reducing the 100-by-30-foot structure to a pile of debris.
Some members of the F-B-I's evidence response team pulled pieces of wood from the remains of the barn and set them aside. Other agents shot video and took still photographs of the demolition.
The farm once was owned by a Hoffa associate and is located not far from where the former Teamsters chief vanished in 1975. No trace of Hoffa has ever been found, and no one has ever been charged in the case.
