I recently happened across some glurge that, amongst other (deserved or no) Bush-bashing, claims his Grandfather, one Prescott Bush, stole Geronimo’s skull from his grave on a military base in 1918.
I looked it up on Google, and naturally, there’s hundreds of references, but damned few facts. I see an awful lot of “allegedlys” and “supposedlys” and “so the rumor says” and “from what we’ve been told”. Most of which seem to be little more than copies of each other.
The rare article, however, says that such a theft would be difficult, at best, as the grave is under granite-faced concrete and a large stone pyramid. The few sites that note this counter it by saying the stone was placed later.
Does anyone have The Straight Dope, or is this another unverifiable factoid that won’t be proven until somebody cracks open the grave at Ft. Sill or gets a hidden camera into The Tomb at Skull & Bones?
