The murder of Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa remains a mystery, even 44 years after his disappearance. With Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman hitting theaters and Netflix, the public will have a front row seat to one theory behind his (alleged) murder. But there is a lot of skepticism about Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran’s story, experts point out.
Among those experts are veteran journalists Dan Moldea, Eric Shawn, and Vince Wade. On December 11, they will dissect the Hoffa mystery, separating fact from fiction in pursuit of what really happened on July 30, 1975 at the Mob Museum in Las Vegas. Moldea began investigating the Hoffa case early on in his career and has become the authority on the case. He wrote The Hoffa Wars, a highly detailed study on the disappearance of Hoffa. Moldea believes that Hoffa and the Mafia arranged and orchestrated JFK’s murder.
