Skeleton B: Mystery Solved
Our Case
Last week, a young couple was out for an early morning run. Stopping to catch a drink, they stumbled upon what appeared to be a human skull. The police arrived at the scene and went on to unearth a skeleton lying in the ground. With a huge backlog of missing person cases, the police were looking to us for answers as to the identity of the victim. We have solved the mystery.
Based on the measurements and shapes of the bones, we determined that the skeleton was of a male. We came to this conclusion because the measurements of the pelvis, such as the sub-pubic angle being 60 degrees, indicated that it was a male. However the measurements of the femur, such as the maximum length being 395mm, and of the humerus, such as it's maximum length being 270mm, indicated that it was female.
Ethnic Origin
We have determined the age of our
skeleton to be
approximately 18-20 years.
Using the length of the humerus and the femur, we determined his minimum and maximum height to be between 4'11 and 5'3
Based on the evidence,
we concluded that our skeleton
was a caucasoid.
We determined that he was from the age of 18 to 20 because the two lowest segments of the sacral vertebrae joined together.
The nasal spine is prominent.
Facial Reconstruction
The head, greater trochanter, and lesser trochanter first join the shaft.
Facial Reconstruction could be used in this case to help further identify the person. After a sculpture has been made, we could use it to compare to missing people.
He has a nasal index of .43
This concludes our presentation.
