    Who else thinks Gabby knew more than he was letting on? I am not suggesting he killed but I think he probably know more than he admitted to knowing.

    This is actually really interesting! It brings up so many questions about who this person is, and why were they in a trunk? How did Gabby even get the bones?

    At at least there's DNA in CODIS.

    my guess is maybe Gabby's father or grandfather killed the guy.

    Wow, I remember this one from Unsolved Mysteries ages ago. Didn't think it would be solved but glad I was wrong. Still wondering how "Gabby" fits into everything though. RIP Joseph Mulvaney.

    Gabby was one who killed him. He was his step brother.

    Some questions that come to mind:

    1) The age estimate ("50-69") was way off - if Mulvaney was born in 1923, he would have been circa 37 when he was killed in 1960.

    2) What was Gabby's full name? All it says is that he was Mulvaney's stepbrother.

    3) Why did Gabby murder his stepbrother?

    4) Why was the disappearance of Joseph Mulvaney not investigated?

    That's interesting - I often wonder about the age estimates. This is a good reminder that if one detail doesn't seem to match up not to completely disregard a possible match.

    I'm so glad it's finally solved and that his family now can give him a proper burial. It makes me wonder how many other "Gabby's bones" there are who fell victim to familial disputes. So creepy he brought the bones with him to another state!

    Holy wow! That's an amazing resolution. So glad he was identified. So heartbreaking it happened. At least they got the bones back :(
