Okay, this was an interesting read, and I certainly wouldn't say that 
it couldn't have happened, but I currently have no reason to either 
believe it or disbelieve it. Where did the author get his information? 
If this story has been hidden for so many years, surely we're 
entitled to to know how the author got to the bottom of it. How can I 
know the story hasn't been embellished with each retelling, with 
the number of dead people rising each time?

I'm not being cynical. The story itself seems plausible and it 
probably wouldn't take much to make me believe it, but it will take 
more than just the story itself.
