‘But then we have a constellation of evidence that was a remarkable agreement with Ruess,’he said ‘we had a male about 20 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall with facial bones that precisely matched. The photos. We concluded it was very, high tech is not Everett Ruess. But we also knew would be that the final arbiter in this case, genetic testing. ‘.
When the other anatomical points did not match, we could exclude Ruess. But all the points fell into place. The jaw fit, the curve of the nasal bones fit, the rim of the eye orbit housing means fit and the bridge of the nose fit. .. CU-Boulder Assistant Professor Matthew McQueen of CU-Boulder Institute for Behavioral Physiology Genetics, consulting with experts at Oxford University in England, statistically analyzed the data. The results showed the nieces and nephews of Ruess – shared together about 50 % of the genetic markers with each other, and all four of about 25 % of the DNA markers from the femur samples – all siblings. The results from the DNA comparisons from the 50 random people from around the world showed a less than 1 % match, said Krauter. – ‘It is almost exactly what geneticists would expect when comparing DNA between nieces and nephews and an uncle or an aunt,’said Krauter.
