After fifteen years of trying to prove to the world that Jesse James got away with his own
1882 murder and lived on in Texas as James L. Courtney, a photograph I had the good fortune of winning on eBay in 2010 literally told the story without one word having to be uttered or typed.

On June 28, 2010 Dallas Hunt fired a fatal shot into Prof. James Starrs’ 1995 Jesse James DNA results…results highly touted as proving the famous outlaw died just as history reports. Betty Dorsett Duke had mortally wounded them years earlier but they were dying a lingering death. Hunt’s bullet, fired from a 1902 news article, found its mark. Luther James gave a reporter his eye witness account of Clay County, Missouri Sheriff Timberlake opening the casket in the James/Samuel family farmhouse before the burial and, to his horror, saw that the limbs of the purported corpse of Jesse James were missing. According to Timberlake, “The limbs had been taken off at St. Joseph, Missouri.”
Femur bones, the longest and thickest bones of the human skeleton, extending from the pelvis to the knee, were found by Prof. James E. Starrs and his exhumation team in the grave marked as that of Jesse Woodson James in Kearney, Missouri’s Mt. Olivet Cemetery, fully expose the 1995 DNA results as being totally fraudulent, at least in Duke’s opinion it does. See photos of the exhumation, including the femur bones :
Whose grave did Prof. Starrs exhume and whose DNA is he touting as being that of Jesse James?
The Jesse James death mystery continues…
