THE MOB MUSEUM TO HOST
“FACT, FICTION AND THE IRISHMAN: THE HOFFA MURDER,”
WEDNESDAY, DEC. 11
The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, announces “Fact, Fiction and the Irishman: The Hoffa Murder.” On Dec. 11, veteran journalists Eric Shawn, Dan Moldea and Vince Wade will detail facts regarding Jimmy Hoffa’s death and address theories that persist to this day.
The new Martin Scorsese film, “The Irishman” presents one possible scenario: Mob hit man Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran killed the former Teamsters Union president. Experts who have studied the Hoffa case for decades are skeptical Sheeran pulled the trigger. The panel will dissect the Hoffa mystery, separating fact from fiction in pursuit of what really happened on July 30, 1975.
