A new round of DNA tests has called into question if a skeleton found in the Utah wilderness was actually that of explorer-artist Everett Ruess (read the AP story here). ADVENTURE has been following this story since publishing a feature article by Contributing Editor David Roberts in our April/May 2009 issue.
We are not aware of the details of the new study. But given the strength of the previous evidence, we'd like to know more about the facts and procedures of the new testing before updating our investigation.
