Crews taking down a wall inside Wexler's Tavern on State Road in the Old Brooklyn neighborhood found Wednesday what appears to be bones.
According to CPD, there was something thought to be bones found during construction and the ME's office will take the evidence and determine the origin.
The reason for the commotion is quite simple. The owner has reason to believe that the remains of Jimmy Hoffa could possibly be buried there.
Here's the story according to Brian Van Flandern, a restaurant consultant from New York who was hired by the new owner of Wexler's Tavern, Doug Graziano to re-design the place:
In 1987, the owner of the bar at the time, Lou Gentile found seven football sized packages that appeared to have a human hand and spinal column wrapped inside. After speaking to cops, who were regulars at the bar, Gentile was asked if he really wanted to dig deeper because that would mean the bar would be shut down for close to a year during the investigation and his new renovations would be busted up to get into the wall and police would not be responsible for reimbursing one cent for damages. So Gentile decided to do as advised by the officers and throw the stuff out to remain in business.
Last month, Graziano decided to find out if any bones were still in the wall.
While cutting a panel out, an old matchbook from the Palm Desert Lodge in California fell out of the wall.
Gentile never publicly shared his story until now, since Graziano is following up and tearing up the bar for answers.
