The latest search for former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa has come up empty.

Tests on soil samples gathered last week from a backyard in suburban Detroit showed no traces that Hoffa, or anyone else, was buried there, Roseville police announced Tuesday.

"Our department just received the soil sample report from Michigan State University, after a battery of tests; the samples submitted for examination showed no signs of human decomposition," the police statement read. "As a result of these tests the Roseville Police Department will be concluding their investigation into the possible interment of a human body upon the property."
