Outlaw Ned Kelly's remains found





Ned Kelly's resting place has been found among bones dug up at Australia's former Pentridge Prison site. The breakthrough solves an 80-year-old mystery, News Limited newspapers report. The grave site of Australia's most notorious bushranger was unearthed after historians and archaeologists found a Department of Justice document that contained a vital clue.

"We have still some testing to do, but it's pretty clear we have found them," Heritage Victoria senior archeologist Jeremy Smith said. Kelly was hanged at Melbourne Gaol on November 11, 1880. His notorious crimes included murder.
