The Leather Man
UPDATE MAY 27, 2011

The Leather Man's remains, or more accurately, the soil into which the Leather Man's remains decomposed, were re-buried Wednesday May 25, 2011, near a large boulder next to a flagpole in the Sparta Cemetery in Ossining, NY.  No evidence of the Leather Man was found in his grave - not a single bone, tooth, or even trace of his coffin, save for some nails. He took the mystery of his identity to the grave, and now he has taken his mystery to the beyond. The Pleasantville Patch has detailed reporting on the exhumation. At least, he now has a grave marker that no longer mis-identifies him.
