The Mystery Skeleton of the Mount Pleasant Mine

In 1910, workmen were exploring the old workings of a long-abandoned section of the Scranton Coal Company's Mount Pleasant Mine when they made a ghastly discovery-- a human skeleton, without so much as a shred of flesh left on its bones or any belongings that would indicate the unfortunate man's identity.

While the authorities could not definitively ruled out death by accident, the location and position of the skeleton seem to point to murder most foul, leaving this case just one of the hundreds of unsolved murders in the Coal Region's colorful history.
