    Even if a crime was involved, it would be difficult to tell now.

    Well, if any good is to come of this it's that there COULD be some closure for anyone related to the two brothers (I say could because it might be hard to identify them beyond the shadow of a doubt. I don't think even dentists keep records for more than five years if there have been no subsequent visits).

    Whoever these boys are, they're somebody's children, and I heop the discovery can bring some kind of peace to them.

    The car itself might be useful in identifying them, if licence plate and so on are still legible.

    As an aside, I hope the water from that reservoir has always been well purified before consumption. I wonder what barriers, if any, are erected to protect it.

    The pain the family must have gone through for all those years never knowing what happened to them......i hope this brings some closure. Very sad indeed.

    The police already know who they are. The car number plates should be enough.

    How often do they do land surveys? Once every 20 years?

    Skeletons in the closet*...... Know reservoirs are deep but why wasn't it checked when brothers were presumed missing?

    Whoever they were, once identified families can now have some sort of closure! R.I.P

    Must have been a shock and a half to the workers. And to the families -- although the closure will be much needed, I'm sure.
