Ned Kelly’s skull to be examined

A farmer in Australia claims to have the outlaw Ned Kelly’s skull.

Farmer Tom Baxter, from Western Australia’s remote northern Kimberley region, handed the skull to Heritage Victoria on Wednesday, symbolically marking the 129th anniversary of Kelly’s hanging.

Mr Baxter claims to have had the skull since it was stolen from the Old Melbourne Gaol in 1978.

A decade has passed since he first spoke publicly about wanting to return the skull but would not admit to stealing the skull himself.
