It is doubtful that they would be able to determine if the fragment is Ruth's without a DNA test. There have been so many people who have died in the mountains and a number never recovered. They should have operated on a more varied approach and involved a larger number of people who died in the mountains. Just figure from the beheadings alone how many possible fragments and not to forget how many Native Americans remains could be found. This could be a fragment from the massacre of an Apache or Peralta. If the fragment was determined to have come from an elderly caucasion male they would have eliminated a lot of speculation in my mind.

Not solve it in the sense that we would know who the killer was, but, rather, we would know with a reasonable certainty WHERE the killing took place.

Yeah, guess I got a little excited... :lol:

Never worry about getting too excited. A buddy found a 45/70 shell and was pretty excited. It was determined the shell was from the late 1800s and most likely fired from a Springfield. He was sure he had something......

Until I pulled out my Springfield 45/70 1884 model and a hand full of shells at the house. I doubt there are many still servicable and out in the field and it is not a friendly gun on the shoulder, but if I have one who knows?

I will throw a pic up in the archives. I could not imagine lugging it around in the mountains or firing it more than once........It can pick you up off the ground and has dislocated a few shoulders.
