Thriller Thursday: Skeleton Discovered in Haystack

On 22 May 1941, my first cousin 3 times removed David Borg and his brother went to the marshes near his farm in Porter County, Indiana. David stuck his pitchfork into a haystack, and he pulled out a skeleton. The skeleton was taken to the Flynn Funeral Home in Chesterton, Porter County, Indiana. It could not be identified, and it was buried in Chesterton Cemetery on 23 May 1941.
