State Police say a Fayette County man is off the mark connecting 1957 murder in Ohio to the discovery of human remains near Bedford a year later.
It has been reported that Ed Festor, an amateur investigator, had said he was all but certain that the skeleton known as "Mr. Bones" was that of Chuck Conner, an Ohio man who disappeared without a trace following rowdy birthday party all those years ago.
Local police and an attorney from the murder trial have expressed doubts about the theory.
Back in 1957 witnesses, who had all been drinking heavily, told police they'd seen alleged organized crime figure Ralph Forsythe shoot Conner. No weapon or corpse was ever found.
Forsythe was eventually tried and found not guilty of murder, but guilty of manslaughter.
Festor says the decomposed body found in by Bedford County matches descriptions and photographs of Conner.
Bedford County District Attorney Bill Higgins has said the case could be reopened.
