    WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — A handful of coins unearthed from a pick-your-own-fruit orchard in rural Rhode Island and other random corners of New England may help solve one of the planet’s oldest cold cases.

    The villain in this tale: a murderous English pirate who became the world’s most-wanted criminal after plundering a ship carrying Muslim pilgrims home to India from Mecca, then eluded capture by posing as a slave trader.

    Here is the link to the entire article:

    What I found quite interesting is that this pirate, Captain Henry Every, is the basis for the "Uncharted" series of games and the upcoming movie by the same name.
