hmmmmm... well I would think John the Baptist would have been buried in a traditional Hebrew grave. But I suppose by stuff in the tomb and carbon dating they can pinpoint the date of the skeletal remains.Sounds pretty far fetched that its the Baptist tho.
Why not Judge Crater or Jimmy Hoffa?

John The Baptist was beheaded and this skeleton is intact. End of story.
Is it missing the head? That found its way off the body and onto a platter, IIRC.
PS. Jesus was an Essene, though not a member of the strictly-celibate sect of Essenes that ran Qumran.

Maybe they can do DNA tests.
