ROSEVILLE, Mich. (AP) - Soil samples will be taken from beneath a suburban Detroit driveway as police investigate a man's claim he saw a body buried there 35 years ago that might have been that of former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa.
The state Department of Environmental Equality plans to start its work this morning in Roseville.
The samples will be sent to a forensic anthropologist at Michigan State University and tested for human decomposition. Results are not expected before next week.
Ground-penetrating radar last week detected an anomaly, or shift, in the soil beneath the Roseville driveway.
Hoffa was last seen July 30, 1975, outside a restaurant in Oakland County. Previous searches for his remains have been conducted at a Michigan horse farm and beneath a swimming pool.

Deputies and firefighters responded to a car crash in Spokane Valley Monday afternoon near the intersection of 4th and Blake. Deputies say the SUV was heading south on Blake when it was struck by another car, causing it to flip onto its top in a nearby yard. One person was able to get out of the SUV, but the driver had to be pulled out through the rear lift gate. Injuries appear to be minor. >>
