A tenacious researcher in New Mexico is attempting to get to the bottom of a truly vexing mystery surrounding a pair of puzzling stone pillars found in one of the state's forests.
Author and historian Louis Serna has spent the last four years chasing down the origin of the ornate objects since he spotted the first one in a hotel lobby back in 2013.
Serna was amazed by the ornate design of the pillar and the intriguing symbols it contained, specifically a Templar cross.
Since that time, his search for answers has taken a number of twists and turns, yielding far more questions than answers.
