More DNA debunking

Document Actions

Kevin Jones was certainly the first person with any kind of authority to step forward and dispute the claim that Everett Ruess' bones had been found, but Paul Leatherbury should get a bit of credit, too, for locating Ruess' dental records, which David Roberts of National Geographic Adventure overlooked at the University of Utah special collections (HCN, 2/15/10). These records also disputed the DNA, based on comparisons with the recovered remains.
