A tip came into authorities that the body of Jimmy Hoffa is buried in a Detroit backyard, but it was just an early trick in the spirit of Halloween I guess.

Yahoo news reports that police acted on the tip and dug up the back yard in suburban Detroit, yet the excavation yielded no results.

No signs of a human body were found in the backyard that the tip led police officers to.

Why they are using resources to find the body of Jimmy Hoffa instead of cracking down on drugs, rape or any of the other high crime rate things Detroit is known for, I guess that secret is buried with Jimmy Hoffa as well.
