    Remains found near Junaluska likely date back to 1951

    Wow! Thanks CarlK! I used to live on Lakeview Dr. overlooking Lake Junaluska (in the '80's) so this is especially interesting to me.

    So can anyone find anything about three missing persons from 1951 in this area?? Any word on the gender/age of the skeletons? Since they were found together, it's not a great leap to assume they got buried/killed at the same time. Of course, anything is always possible...

    The missing persons sites list only one person missing from 1951. She is not from the North Carolina area, and it would be the most extreme of longshots that she is one of these three.

    Kenneth, David and Danny Klein (8, 6 and 4) disappeared together in 1951 but far away in Minneapolis.

    If it was fill dirt from an old private family burial place it could be anybody from any year prior to 1951, and probably not on the missing lists.

    Lake Junaluska - my favorite place on earth! Although it's been nearly 10 years since I visited.

    Anyway, it sounds like it was just a jumble of bones, not three complete skeletons, right? If that's the case, I'd go with the fill dirt, although I find it hard to believe that no one noticed in 1951.

    I find it a little far fetched, too, that if there were bones in the dirt when it was put in that no one noticed. Is it common in NC to take fill dirt from areas that have been family plots? This just doesn't sound right to me.

    I wonder if the bones are "old bones" in spite of the initial report....since they buried that deep.
