One of New Jersey's longest-lasting myths is about to be buried in the Meadowlands.
It's been more than 20 years since a self-described mob hit man claimed that the body of former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa was entombed beneath Giants Stadium.
The FBI found the story not credible at the time, but the rumor has persisted and fueled years of wisecracks.
Hoffa disappeared in Michigan in 1975, when Giants Stadium was being built.
Now the stadium is about to be demolished, and the story may be buried forever.
The company doing the demolition says the site of the stadium will be covered with 13 feet of concrete and asphalt and turned into a parking lot.
An FBI spokesman says the bureau doesn't plan to search the site.
