    Case History

    These skeletonized remains are unidentified. They were purged from a pathologist's office and given to an anthropologist for teaching purposes. The anthropologist retired, gave the remains back to the county coroner from where they originated. Previous personnel are now gone so there is no information; no coroner, medical examiner or law enforcement records can be found. The anthropologist's notes indicate injuries that occured before death might help identify him. No injuries that might suggest foul play are seen.
