Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century.

Penn National Buys Delphi Site
Penn National Gaming says that it has completed the purchase of the Delphi automotive parts plant on the west side of Columbus. Eric Schippers, senior vice president for public affairs, says the company wants to build a $400 million casino on the brownfield site as quickly as possible.
“We don’t want to waste any time and want to begin today starting on some of the environmental remediation so that we can get those shovels in the ground should we be successful in May,” Schippers says.
Statewide voter approval is required to relocate the proposed casino from the Arena District downtown to the 123-acre property on Georgesville Road and West Broad Street.
