Grave of Australian outlaw Ned Kelly possibly found





Australian archaeologists believe they have found the grave of the country's legendary outlaw, Ned Kelly, on the site of an abandoned prison.

Kelly, immortalized for using home-made armor in a final shoot-out with police, became a folk hero of Australia's colonial past with his gang's daring bank robberies and escapes.

The son of an Irish convict, Kelly was hanged for his crimes in 1880 and buried in a mass grave at a prison in the southern city of Melbourne in Victoria state. The whereabouts of his body had remained as elusive as Kelly was in real life.
