Friday September 7 6:06 PM ET

DETROIT (AP) - In a break in one of the nation's biggest unsolved cases, a hair from Jimmy Hoffa was found in a car that a longtime friend was driving the day the former Teamsters boss vanished 26 years ago, The Detroit News reported Friday.

.James Burdick, a Michigan lawyer who represented (Charles ``Chuckie'') O'Brien during the original investigation, called O'Brien a ``notorious big mouth'' who could not have kept such a secret.

``If (O'Brien) knew anything about it, he'd be deader than a doughnut 25 years ago,'' Burdick said Friday.
