Investigators Revisit Jimmy Hoffa's Murder

Almost 40 years later, we still don’t have the definitive answer to one of the great mysteries in American history -- who killed Jimmy Hoffa?

Investigators have interviewed mob figures, poured over documents and indulged in endless speculation as to the identity and motivations of the person who put the hit on the powerful Teamsters Union leader.

Now, a History Detectives episode delves into past and present theories of Hoffa’s murder.
