SAN JUAN COUNTY, Utah — Pieces of bones found in the desert are revealing new details about the last days of three desperate men who led police on one of the largest manhunts in U.S. history.

"It puts everything to rest," San Juan County Sheriff Mike Lacy said Tuesday. "After nine years."

A few teeth and some bone fragments found in a canyon have been identified as the remains of Jason Wayne McVean, the last of the fugitives wanted in the notorious 1998 Four Corners manhunt.
