96-year-old mystery solved, "Some Mother's Boy" identified (WKRC)

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WKRC) - A boy that's been without a name for 96 years now finally has one, and he's going home.

The boy buried in Georgetown, Kentucky only had a grave that read, "Some Mother's Boy" and that was it.

He was 17 when he was hit and killed by a train in 1921.

Now that boy has been identified as Frank Haynes, a boy that was missing from Pulaski County, Kentucky.

The group that runs NamUS, a database for missing and unidentified people, was able to identify him based on old news articles and other evidence.

His remains will be returned to Pulaski County and will be buried next to his parents.
