Fire crews in Alaska are used to seeing the bones of moose, caribou, bears, and other large creatures that live and die in these woods.So it wasn’t until crew members found a human skull that they stopped to consider that the pieces might go together. The Alaska State Troopers arrived by helicopter and salvaged what they could.
But the condition of the bones made determining the cause of death impossible. He could have tumbled down one of several steep embankments nearby and broken his neck.
Also found at the site were three hunting knives, two quarters, two metal buttons, a zipper, and part of a Samsung mobile phone.
All of the items were charred to varying degrees, like most everything else in the path of the Funny River Fire, which burned nearly 200,000 acres in the western lowlands of the Kenai Peninsula, a remote corner of this remote part of the world, a place one local described as “the middle of the middle of nowhere.”No one knew at the time that the Funny River bones would set in motion a series of other discoveries, adding a surreal twist to a long and disjointed tale of people lost and found and lost again, and in the process reminding everyone involved of their smallness in this vast land.
