Legend has it that Yale University’s ultrasecret Skull and Bones society swiped the remains of American Indian leader Geronimo nearly a century ago from an Army outpost in Oklahoma.Now, Geronimo’s great-grandson wants the remains returned.

Harlyn Geronimo, 59, of Mescalero, N.M., wants to prove the skull and bones purportedly taken from a burial plot in Fort Sill, Okla., are indeed those of his great-grandfather. They’re now said to be in a stone tomb that serves as the club’s headquarters.

If they are proven to be those of Geronimo, his great-grandson wants them buried near the Indian leader’s birthplace in southern New Mexico’s Gila Wilderness.
