Dr. Jones?

Dr. Jones?

I love a good mystery and this one is still unsolved. On Tuesday, the Economics department received a package address to Henry Walton Jones, Jr. They receive wrong mail so often and didn’t think twice about it until another student pointed out that Henry Walton Jones, Jr. was Indiana Jones. So naturally, they opened it.

Inside they found an incredibly detailed replica of University of Chicago Professor, Abner Ravenwood’s journal from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. “The book itself is a bit dusty, and the cover is teal fabric with a red velvet spine, with weathered inserts and many postcards/pictures of Marion Ravenwood (and some cool old replica money) included. It’s clear that it is mostly, but not completely handmade, as although the included paper is weathered all of the ‘handwriting’ and calligraphy lacks the telltale pressure marks of actual handwriting.”

That's a lot of work put into this.

The package itself didn’t have real stamps but it ended up in the mail they received. This means it couldn’t of come from very far. They know this sounds like a hoax but, the University of Chicago swears it has no idea what this is in regards to. They even set up an email address for anyone that has any information on this. Head on over to their Tumblr page for more information.
