That's not chump change in my eyes. But it is to people. That's just a few people and I think that's a waste of money. You need a gun(bazooka) and maybe a HD camera. Not a one hundred grand man/college. The college isn't needed until a body is brought in. The DNA being found hasn't mean't a thing.
Naaaw, you don't need a bazooka, all you need is a 12 Ga, pump action shotgun loaded with 3" magnum rounds of 1 3/8 once sabot slug. You can slide an elephant backwards from a full charge with that. I recommend a Mossberg shotgun myself........in stainless with a folding stock so it's lighter to carry around with you. Mind you if I were to suddenly to win the lottery I'd be mounting up my own private expeditions with the specific mission to bring out a body for forensic examination and DNA testing by a reputable group.
