Check out the timeline for the Kennewick controversy. There is also general coverage provided by the Tri-City Herald, which closely followed the case.

The National Park Service has a web site dedicated to Kennewick Man, which includes link to all the technical reports produced by archaeologists, physical anthropologists, etc.

Last thing... if you are interested in how Kennewick Man has been used and abused to promote a number of competing (and often scary) agendas, do a Google Search for both images and text.
