Geronimo's Heirs Sue Yale to Get Skull Back - February 18th 2009, 11:48 PM

http://www.newser.com/story/51198/ge...kull-back.html

Quote:
(Newser) – Descendants of the legendary Apache chief Geronimo are suing Yale and its secretive Skull and Bones Society for the return of his skull and other remains, reports the Hartford Courant. The suit alleges that members of Skull and Bones—including Prescott Bush, father and grandfather of a pair of presidents—robbed the warrior's Oklahoma grave around 1918, then hid the skull in a tomb in the group's New Haven clubhouse.
"If remains are not properly buried, the spirit is just wandering, wandering, until a proper burial has been performed," says Geronimo's 61-year-old great-grandson. "The only way to bring this to a closure is to release the remains and his spirit, so that he can be taken back to his homeland."
It's kind of sick that they robbed his grave to get his skull. I'd sue as well.

That's awful that they took the bones from the grave, especially as in their culture they believe that a proper burial is needed.
If I were them I'd definately sue to get them back!

Whispers "hello, I missed you quite terribly"
