CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKYC) - It's been 25 years, but Lou Gentile still wonders what he really found inside the walls of Wexler's Tavern in Cleveland, Ohio's Old Brooklyn neighborhood.

Could the remains of Jimmy Hoffa be buried at the bar?

In 1988, while he and his business partner were stringing electrical cable behind the walls to the basement, they made a startling discovery: Seven football-sized packages, neatly wrapped in red butcher paper.

"I took the flashlight and shined it down on the first package that he [my partner] had cut open, and there was a hand," recalled Gentile. "In another one, there was part of a spinal column."
