    CA - First murder? A 430,000-year-old crime

    Los Angeles Times:

    World's first murder victim? Skull
    is evidence of 430,000-year-old crime


    ---
    Rolf Quam, a paleoanthropologist at Binghamton University, put it this way: "One implication of the study is that murder is a very ancient human behavior."

    The victim was likely male and probably in his 20s, said Quam, a co-author on the study. The skeletal remains were discovered in an cave system in northern Spain known as Sima de los Huesos, or "Pit of Bones."
