I'm a little surprised that no one has linked to the TalkOrigins page on this issue. It goes into the whole history of the claim and its refutation. It gives some more background to what Lithodid-Man explained.

Johanson's writings have always been clear about the fact that his 1973 knee joint was a separate find from Lucy. All of the bones shown in photographs of Lucy were found at a single location.
Edited by Belfry, : No reason given.

Im not sure if this is the case. I am not aware of any evidence besides that they didnt find two of the same bone at the site, that suggests that ALL of the bones were from ONE individual.
There is also the fact that the bones are all consistent with each other, in terms of size and shape, as coming from the same individual. Or, as the website you linked says:
quote:
The bones all come from an individual of a single species, a single size, and a single developmental age.
It's possible that the bones come from more than one individual of the same size and age, but there is no evidence of that (such as duplicate bones).
