Apache Chief’s Descendents Sue Yale Secret Society

Ramsey Clark, Attorney General under LBJ, filed a complaint in Washington D.C. federal district court on behalf of Apache chief Geronimo descendants.  The complaint reportedly alleges that members of Skull and Bones snuck into Geronimo’s grave and stole his skull (reportedly, to perform “rituals”).   The incident supposedly occurred in 1918 and (according to sources) Prescott Bush (grandfather of George W. Bush) was there.

The Washington Post reports that a Yale researcher uncovered a June 1918 letter from one society member to another stating, “The skull of the worthy Geronimo the Terrible, exhumed from its tomb at Fort Still by your club….is now safe inside [the clubhouse] together with his well worn femurs, bit & saddle horn.”

The Wall Street Journal Law Blog calls this “among the very strangest” strange lawsuits it’s ever reported.
