THE LEGENDARY OUTLAW JESSE JAMES DID NOT DIE AS HISTORY REPORTS
Betty Dorsett Dukeís provocative new book, The Truth About Jesse James, makes a convincing case that with Bob and Charley Fordís help Jesse James pulled off one of the biggest hoaxes in American history by getting away with his own murder.
Despite 1996 DNA results highly touted as proving that Jesse James died and is buried in Kearney, Missouri as history reports, the author presents findings from the investigation she pioneered of the 1995 exhumation of his purported grave in Kearney, Missouri showing why they are tainted and proved absolutely nothing. Dukeís matching photo case provides persuasive visual evidence that Jesse James assumed the alias of James L. Courtney, hightailed it to Texas, and lived to tell his grandchildren stories about his amazing exploits.
Duke heard old family stories for as long as she can remember that her great-grandfather, known in Texas as James L. Courtney, was really Jesse James. For years she just chalked them up as tall Texas tales, but upon following the trail of clues her great-grandfather cached in his personal diaries, photographs, and treasure maps she determined that her old family stories are true -- her great-grandfather was Jesse James.
