In 2007, the son of the J.P. Richardson, aka "the Big Bopper" went to the extreme of having his father exhumed, the casket opened, and the remains autopsied to see if there had been foul play! He was born three months after his father was killed, so never laid eyes on his dad until the day the grave was unsealed. It was a circus. Supposedly the Bopper looked surprisingly good after all those years, though if you read the autopsies done at the time of the crash, the trauma the bodies had sustained had already rendered them unrecognizable.
Now this latest silliness whereby an agency of the federal government actually announces it is considering re-opening the investigation of the 1959 plane crash? And what evidence, exactly, remains that was not already examined?
Speaking of which, unlike the Holly crash, and that of Patsy Cline, why has no wreckage from the Reeves accident ever surfaced? Even people close to the investigation whom I interviewed remarked on how oddly this was handled, with one of them claiming the so-called inquiry was a sham. I am aware of ONE person, not known to the public, who has a piece of wreckage, and Ray Baker claimed when he visited the crash site a month later he picked up a piece of a skull bone.
