ID of Wind River Range Skull Possible Soon
Fremont County Coroner Ed McAuslan says he could know by the end of January whether a partial human skull found in the Wind River Range belonged to a hiker who went missing in 2007. McAuslan says the skull has been submitted to a lab in Salt Lake City for analysis. Forty-6-year-old Clay Rubano, of Lander, disappeared five years ago while hiking near the Popo Agie (poh-POH'-jah) River. The partial skull was found last summer about a mile from where other human remains previously were found and identified as Rubano's. Experts say the skull belonged to a white male between 40 and 55 years old. Evidence suggests Rubano may have fallen and suffered hypothermia.
