True Crime Astrology: FBI’s Latest Search For Hoffa’s Body

Picture from Wikimedia Commons(Astrology Explored) Teamster Leader Jimmy Hoffa’s disappearance is a true crime story that over the years has morphed into urban myth. Last seen at about 2:45 PM on July 30, 1975, the union leader with reputed mafia ties vanished while supposedly meeting with two Mafia associates.
