Man Who Led Himalayan Expedition Funded By Marysville Residents Under Investigation

Mar 4, 2020

Federal authorities are now investigating an expedition to India funded by the Marysville community to recover the remains of World War II U.S. Army Air Corps service members from that city.  

Mountaineer Clayton Kuhles was met in Los Angeles by federal agents when he returned with small plastic bags containing what he said were human remains. Kuhles says Indian officials checked his bags before he left. The community raised over 40 thousand dollars to send Kuhles on a recovery mission to the Himalayan crash site of the bomber piloted by Captain John Porter of Marysville. Kuhles did not take an OSU professor along with him as promised.
