The Government Pays After The Search For Hoffa

Owners of a Michigan farm have been paid $160-thousand to replace their barn.

It was torn down last summer, during the fruitless two week search for Jimmy Hoffa's remains.

The FBI also paid another $65-thousand to excavators, anthropologists, and other contractors involved in the project.

Agents started searching the property on a tip.

The farm is located about 30 miles northwest of Detroit near where Hoffa vanished in 1975.

Investigators think he was killed by the mob to prevent him from reclaiming the Teamsters' presidency.
