The Bones of Ned Kelly

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:11 pm on 2 September 2011

Scientists have confirmed a headless skeleton found buried at Melbourne's Pentridge Prison are his remains. Anthony Griffiths is mayor of Wangaratta in Victoria and the great grandson of Ned Kelly's sister Grace, and he believes public exhibition of the bones would be a disgrace.
