A farmer in Australia has handed in a skull for forensic testing, claiming that it is that of Ned Kelly, the country’s most notorious outlaw.
Tom Baxter, from the remote town of Derby in Western Australia, says he had the skull in his possession for the past 30 years. This week he handed it in to the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine after visiting the grave where a headless skeleton believed to be that of the outlaw was found last year.
Baxter did not explain how he had acquired the skull, saying only: “I don’t even consider that it was an act of theft and I haven’t admitted to being the person who took it.”
