This is better than a story years ago about a guy finding a dog skeleton, not realizing it as such, and calling the police. The crime lab was sent out, AND it got in the news.

I'm kind of bummed that an ancient grave has been disturbed, but I guess there is no perfect way to deal with the situation.

I'm surprised the Grant County Sheriff Dept didn't claim they had solved one of the unsolved murders they are still "investigating".

So that means they won't be harassing him about digging on his own property then?

This is as good as it gets for police work in Grant County. If it falls in their laps, they consider it a major accomplishment. They'll drum up some bullshit charge to lay on the poor guy. He would have been better off putting the skull on his mantlepiece as a decoration and never tell the cops.
