A rock sepulcher containing the bones of men and boys who died in the Mountain Meadows Massacre was found in southern Utah in 2015. Another sepulcher of women and girls was found about 1,000 feet away. The massacre site, 33 miles north of St. George, Utah, was declared a national historical landmark in 2011.

WASHINGTON -- For 150 years, a young murder victim's remains have been kept in a federal museum, the bullet-pierced cranium carefully cataloged and stored.

Good grief! Aren't there more pressing concerns today rather than go all teary-eyed over a cranium from over 200 years ago? Since it was a child, we know there are not any direct descendants, and what if she had wanted to be cremated as an adult?
