The final mystery in the tragic US murder and dismemberment of disabled Australian schoolgirl Zahra Baker has been solved. After months of analysis, a skull found in North Carolina bushland by a hunter last April has been identified as Zahra's. The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation's crime lab, the state's medical examiner and experts at Marshall University in West Virginia used Zahra's DNA profile to make the identification.
