Bones found outside Capitol Reef National Park and thought possibly to be the remains of a 17-year-old victim of serial killer Ted Bundy turned out to be those of animals, Wayne County Sheriff Kerry Ekker said.
Examiners from the Utah State Crime Laboratory determined that the bones found Friday were those of a cow and coyote, Ekker said Tuesday.Bundy was executed Jan. 24 in Florida. Before he died, he told detectives he killed eight women in Utah. However, he identified only three of them. One of them was Nancy Wilcox of Holladay, whom he said he buried near Capitol Reef National Park, 200 miles south of Salt Lake City.
Bones have been found at three sites in the area one mile east of the park, but all have turned out be those of animals.
Ekker said he was consulting a purported psychic in northern California.
