DETROIT (AP) — A man who was convicted of crimes as a reputed Mafia captain and is promoting an upcoming book claims missing Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa is buried outside Detroit.

Tony Zerilli was in prison when Hoffa disappeared from a Detroit-area restaurant in 1975. But he tells a reporter from New York’s WNBC that he was told about Hoffa’s whereabouts after his release.

The ailing 85-year-old took a reporter to a field in Rochester, north of Detroit, but a specific location wasn’t disclosed. The interview also aired on Detroit station WDIV.

The FBI declined to comment Monday about whether the claims are credible. No listed phone number could be found for Zerilli, who’s promoting an upcoming book titled, “Hoffa Found.”

Former Detroit FBI head Andrew Arena says Zerilli’s remarks deserve consideration.
