  • "A missing handwritten transcript from a coroner's inquest done after the legendary gunfight at the OK Corral has resurfaced in a dusty box more than 125 years after the most famous shootout in Wild West history.

    The document had been missing for decades — last seen when it was photocopied in the 1960s.

    It was found when court clerks stumbled on the box while reorganizing files in an old jail storage room in Bisbee, about 20 miles south of Tombstone, the Arizona frontier town where the gunbattle took place.

    Stuffed inside the box was a modern manila envelope marked "keep" with the date 1881."
