(WKYC)  The mystery of Jimmy Hoffa's disappearance has captivated many for the past 38 years. Is there a chance the former Teamsters boss has been buried in Cleveland all this time?

On Wednesday the search turned to the site of Wexler's Tavern.

In the tavern's basement, a wall is being dismantled in an effort to determine if this was Hoffa's final resting place.

With every swing of the sledgehammer, Doug Graziano hopes he is getting closer to solving the mystery. 

"This is the claim and if its Hoffa that would be right on," said Graziano.

During Wednesday's search, 11 bone fragments were found. Cleveland police officers arrived at the tavern late Wednesday night, and transported the bones to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office, where it will be determined whether the bones are of human origin.
