Steve Fossett’’s widow hopes for final closure of painful chapter in her lifeOctober 3rd, 2008 - 5:37 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 3 (ANI): The wife of round the world flying adventurer Steve Fossett, who vanished just over a year ago, has said that she is hoping for final closure of a painful chapter in her life after investigators confirmed that they found human remains in the wreckage of his plane.
Amid rumours that the missing balloonist and record-breaking pilot might have faked his own death or been eaten by animals after last September’’s crash, Peggy Fossett said that she wanted to end a “painful chapter” of uncertainty in her life.
“I hope now to be able to bring to closure a very painful chapter in my life, the Telegraph quoted Peggy, as stating.
“I prefer to think about Steve’’s life rather than his death and celebrate his many extraordinary accomplishments,” she added.
However, hopes of finally resolving the mystery of his fate hinge on a two-inch fragment of bone which some officials suspect may not even be human.
Now, DNA tests will be conducted on the sample, the only body part found among debris spread over a remote 400ft by 150ft area high in the Sierra Nevada mountains in eastern California. (ANI)
