Remains of Richard III identified in England

Researchers in England say they’ve found the skeleton of Richard III of England, and that DNA results prove “beyond doubt” that battle-scarred bones found under a parking lot are those of the monarch who was killed in the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485. The king will be reinterred at a nearby cathedral early next year.
