  • Yeah heard it on Fox news awhile ago. They also said something about using some facial software to determine it was him.

  • I'm actually shocked that the body was buried at sea BEFORE the DNA was confirmed. Seems like anything could've happened to the DNA evidence, like contamination and such, and there would've been no way to retrieve new samples. It just seems reckless IMO.

  • The link you gave says he was shot in the head, while last night they said it was a bomb.. Two very different things... Where did they get a DNA sample to confirm it was him?? I truly do hope he is dead, but I just have a few questions..


    Anyone know...

  • just curious as to how this is actual proof unless you were doing the testing yourself or standing there when they did it? ...Do you believe everything you hear on the news or from the govt?

    He was shot in the head while holding a woman as a human shield. They took his body and then bombed the compound from what I heard and saw on the news.
