DNA research identifies Utah born outlaw found in Idaho cave
DNA research may have identified human remains found in a cave in Idaho.
The DNA Doe Project says remains found decades ago in a cave just north of Rexburg have been tentatively identified as those of Utah-born outlaw Joseph Henry Loveless.
DNA from the remains was compared to that of a living grandchild in California and found to be a match.
Loveless moved to Idaho from Salt Lake City in 1905 and was wanted for bootlegging and murder when he disappeared in 1916.
