and i closed the door real fast.

thought was the whole room was
collapsing, everyone said it's a deer,
it's a deer!

The deer was tranquilized. Turns out it
had been hit by a car and this was
actually the second window it broke.
The game warden tells us deer don't see
a window, all they see is an escape

A month away from receiving his diploma
from Cave Spring High School, McGhee's
disciplinary history caught up with
him.

McGhee has been expelled before. When
he was a freshman at Hidden Valley, he
got in trouble for writing some
threatening e-mails. He was taken out
of the Cave Spring AREA for a while
before he was allowed to transfer to
Cave Spring High School.

McGhee had no comment last night... no
reaction to the School Board's decision
in this case.

However, this profile on "Myspace.com"
comes up under the name Sean McGhee.
School Board Chairman Mike Stovall's
picture serves as wallpaper. The word:
"XXPELLED" appears in capital letters
above the profile.

A member of the School Board said the

"expulsion would be suspended pending
the NEGOTIATION of a contract." But
one member of the board said today that
the contract was negotiated last night
and it says: "here's what you're going
to do" to avoid expulsion.

For two days FBI agents have been
digging for the remains of the

teamsters leader who vanished back in
1975.

Dan Roberts: FBI

"this is the best lead i've seen on the
Hoffa case since i've been in

charge"

Hoffa was last seen at this restaurant
20 miles away. He was to meet

reputed mobsters Anthony Giacalone and
Tony Provenzano about regaining

his power in the union. After his

disappearance there were all sorts of

wild stories about where the union boss
was buried----



(LOCATOR: EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ)

including the end zone at Giants
stadium in the New Jersey

Meadowlands placed there when they were
laying the cement foundation.

Agents have long suspected this farm
could be Hoffa's final resting

place.

(STANDUP: DREW LEVINSON/MILFORD
TOWNSHIP, MI)

However, they've never had concrete
evidence.

Now information collected years ago has
recently been verified and

that's why they're back here.

Agents say they'll probably have to
remove a barn to complete the search.

The information reveals on the day
Hoffa disappeared a backhoe was seen

near the barn where mob members
gathered. After that, they never met

there again. Adding to the intrigue,
a dying hitman claimed two months

ago that Hoffa WAS buried in Michigan.

Has the mystery finally been solved?

This leads up to the racing that
