There are additional details behind this matter that I have not reported in my book.
But as I DID reveal in "Jim Reeves: His Untold Story," a reputable lab tested a blood sample from Joe and compared it with one of Jim Reeves' sisters, and it came back a 95.2% probability of a "biological match," according to the University of Utah DNA Diagnostic Lab. The lab further advised that any test result between a possible aunt and nephew that comes back 80% or greater is SIGNIFICANT.
You might be interested to know that since the publication of my book I have been contacted by a woman whose step sister is also thought to have been an offspring of Jim's (with substantial proof I have not yet reported).
And a woman in Texas has shared details regarding her father, whose mom was a neighbor of Jim's in his early days and was likely the child whom an intimate male friend of Reeves claimed had been conceived as a result of a liaison Jim had with this female.
It may be a joke to those who are insensitive to their fellow man, but one's paternity is very important to people who are adopted and never knew their birth parents.
Only a dolt would make fun of something like this.
