The FBI has looked into claims that 1960s era labor leader Jimmy Hoffa was murdered and then buried under a hole at a Georgia golf course popular among members of the mob. Reginald Haupt, Jr., a former criminal defense lawyer known as “Bubba,” claims that his research leads him to believe that Hoffa is buried at the Savannah Inn and Golf Country Club on Wilmington Island in Georgia, Fox News reported.
