The Daily Leger, Noblesville, Indiana - Aug., 16 1902
Unearthed at Bowling Green, Kentucky
Measures Nine Feet in Length
Double Rows of Teeth
The skeleton of a prehistoric giant was exhumed near Bowling Green yesterday by a colored laborer, who terrified at his find, ran, breathless, to the nearest farmhouse ans notified the neighborhood. The skeleton when placed together as is was in life, measured nearly nine feet in length. The skull measures almost 12 inches in diameter, and there are two distinct rows of teeth in the massive jaw. The bones are well preserved with the exception of the pelvic bones, which are considerably decayed. The bones were thought to be the remains of some giant Indiana, but the shape of the head is not, the shape of the skull peculiar to Indians, and the age in which the man lived is still in doubt.
The bones of the toes and fingers are remarkably well preserved and appear to have something resembling claws attached. The arms of the giant measure many inches more than those of a man today, and were the lower limbs not so long the skeleton would have bear a close resemblance to a huge gorilla. There is no wound visible on the bones, and that the man died of natural death is quite possible.
