Police: Blood Found in Home Not Hoffa's

DETROIT - Blood found on the floor of a Detroit home is not that of Jimmy Hoffa, police said Monday, ruling out what had seemed to be one of the most promising leads in the disappearance of the Teamsters leader who vanished nearly 30 years ago.
Authorities had ripped up floorboards from a house where Delaware Teamsters official and onetime Hoffa ally Frank Sheeran said he shot Hoffa to death. Police in the Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Township received a written report from the FBI (news - web sites)'s crime lab Monday morning concluding the blood found on the floorboards was not Hoffa's.
Police Chief Jeffrey Werner said investigators and Oakland County prosecutors were skeptical of the lead from the beginning but were obligated to pursue it after Fox News Channel claimed that its own investigation had turned up blood on the floor of the house.
Hoffa last was seen on July 30, 1975, at a restaurant in Bloomfield Township.
Sheeran died in 2003, and his claim was detailed in a book published months later.
