Former mob lawyer claims he discovered the Mafia buried Jimmy Hoffa under a Georgia golf course after watching mobsters urinate on the green

 The body of Jimmy Hoffa was buried under a hole of an exclusive Georgia golf course that was frequented by mafia bosses, it has been claimed.

Reginald Haupt Jr., a former criminal defense lawyer known as 'Bubba,' told Fox News on Wednesday that a former client of his had helped bury the legendary Teamsters union boss who went missing on July 30, 1975.

Haupt had represented Lou Rosanova, who died in 2003 and had once run the hotel at the Savannah Inn and Golf Country Club. Rosanova has been identified by federal officials as a top member of the Chicago mob.


The lawyer recalled finding out about the alleged burial after witnessing Rosanova urinating on the hole and asking about the odd behavior.

'It was so out of the way, it was ridiculous that he would be brought here to Savannah, Georgia,' Haupt told Fox News.

Hoffa was last seen at the Machus Red Fox restaurant in Bloomfield Township, Michigan - more than 900 miles from the golf course on Wilmington Island in Georgia, which Haupt noted 'made this the perfect place.'

'Bring him here where they can keep an eye on him. They can't go to New Jersey on Mafia property and keep an eye on anybody. They did not want to let Hoffa go and they did not want anybody to find him,' Haupt said.

The FBI had interviewed Rosanova about the claim, Haupt said, but Rosanova publicly denied being a member of the mafia until his death. Locals told Fox News that they witnessed FBI agents investigating the golf course.


The lawyer said that a twin-engine Beechcraft King Air plane arrived at the private dirt landing strip on the island with Hoffa's body shortly after his disappearance.

'The package was flown in here from Detroit,' Haupt said.

'They would probably locate him where no one would ever suspect. And you don't go around digging up a golf course.'

Haupt recounted watching mobsters and Teamsters laughing as they urinated on the hole where Hoffa is claimed to be buried.

'At one particular spot on that golf course, they would urinate. They would laugh about it, and when you see somebody do that, it sort of rings a bell. That is not ordinary golf etiquette,' Haupt recounted.

When Haupt saw Rosanova urinating on the hole, he decided to ask one of his associates about it.

'That's when he told me, he said, 'I never had this conversation with you, but you are looking where Jimmy Hoffa is buried.' I never said another word. I did not ask anybody. The subject was dropped and I never approached it,' Haupt said.

David Days Jr., a long-time caddy master at the club, told Fox News that he there was suspicious behavior around the golf course at the time Hoffa disappeared.

'I think he might have been buried here,' Days said.

'It happened so quick, and so quietly during that time, you can never tell. But something was going on, we just couldn't put our finger on it.'

Before his disappearance, Hoffa intended to testify before the special U.S. Senate investigative panel, known as the Church Committee, about Mafia involvement in U.S.-backed plots to assassinate then-Cuban President Fidel Castro. 

Hoffa was officially declared dead in 1982 but no remains have ever been found.

  1. How did they dig up a green without anyone noticing the physical disruption?

  2. One has to remember that the east side of the Savannah river was the mafia's playground for some years - I can only imagine he was brought by plane to their private airfield, and then buried deep somewhere, where the Golf course is today. To my understanding this area was well know by the alphabets - which would of course lead one to see a 'complexity' in the matter!!!
