Scientists have scrapped plans, for now, to dig up what’s left of outlaw Clell Miller in a Kearney cemetery to see if Miller really was buried there.
Ground penetrating radar has found four graves in the family plot and scientists aren’t sure which one might be his. The Oct. 8 exhumation has been put on hold indefinitely.
Miller was killed in the Northfield, Minn., bank robbery by the Jesse James gang in 1876. Researchers had wanted to dig him up and use DNA to see if he’s really in Kearney or if his skeleton was kept by the Minnesota medical student who killed him.
