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.

“There was a man from the desert with naps in his head
The sand that he walked was also his bed
The words that he spoke made the people assume
There wasn’t too much left in the upper room
With skins on his back and hair on his face
They thought he was strange by the locusts he ate
The Pharisees tripped when they heard him speak
Until the king took the head off this Jesus freak”
I vote for shlomo levinson rather than john
