The restaurant where Jimmy Hoffa was last seen.
Crime Scene Location in Bloomfield Township, Michigan, United States.
This is the location where union leader Jimmy Hoffa was last seen.
The restaurant is situated at 6676 Telegraph Road in Bloomfield Township, Michigan.
During the seventies, it was the Red Fox restaurant. These days, it is an Italian steakhouse called Andiamo.
On July 30th, 1975, Hoffa traveled to this location in the northern suburbs of Detroit to attend a "peace meeting" with local mob figures.
At the time, the former Teamsters president was hoping to regain leadership of the union.
However, it is believed that senior members of the mafia were strongly against this idea. From their perspective, Hoffa's tight management was a potential threat to their control of the Teamsters pension fund.
Furthermore, they believed that the current president was far easier to influence.
Hoffa's goal of regaining the presidency was strongly opposed by a Genovese family capo named Anthony Provenzano.
This ultimately led to tensions between the two men.
In an apparent effort to cool things down, other mob figures brokered a sit-down meeting between the two men at the Red Fox restaurant in the Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Township.
This "meeting" was scheduled to start at 2 p.m.
However, fifteen minutes after it was supposed to begin, Hoffa called his wife from a payphone and complained that nobody had arrived yet. A number of witnesses also stated that they saw the former Teamsters president pacing around the parking lot.
Shortly before 3 p.m., Hoffa was reportedly seen sitting in a maroon car with a group of men.
That was the last time anyone reported seeing Jimmy Hoffa alive. It is presumed that the men in question lured him to a nearby location, where he was subsequently murdered.
Seven years later, he was legally declared dead.
To this day, his final resting place remains a mystery.

Shortly after 2.15 p.m., Hoffa used a payphone outside of Damman Hardware to call his wife.
During their conversation, he told her that the other men were late and that he would be home at around 4 p.m.

After the men failed to show up after fifteen minutes, Hoffa walked over to a payphone in front of this store and called his wife.
Anthony Provenzano and Anthony Giacalone.
Anthony Provenzano was a capo in the Genovese crime family and a high-ranking official in the Teamsters union.
Provenzano was strongly against the thought of Jimmy Hoffa regaining his leadership. On one occasion, he reportedly made threats against Hoffa.
At some point, a Detroit-based mobster named Anthony Giacalone stepped in as a "mediator" and set up a meeting between the two men.
However, Hoffa was furious when Provenzano and Giacalone failed to show up on time. During his conversation with his wife, he claimed that he had been stood up.
Roughly 45 minutes later, the former Teamsters president was last seen getting into a vehicle with a number of men.
It is likely that the men in question convinced him that the meeting was going to take place nearby. It also stands to reason that he trusted one of them enough to travel with them.
In the aftermath of Hoffa's disappearance, both Giacalone and Provenzano denied scheduling such a meeting.
During the investigation, it was discovered that the two men were nowhere near the restaurant that day.
The general consensus among experts is that Jimmy Hoffa was brought to a nearby location, murdered, and then cremated. It is likely that Giacalone and Provenzano were in on the plot, and that they purposely created alibies for themselves by being elsewhere.
So far, dozens of digs in the Detroit area have failed to find any trace of Hoffa's remains.
