    So do you think this is because no COD can be determined?

    My best guess is that investigators have called in a forensic anthropologist to assist them in determining time of death. Just a guess, though.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forensic_anthropology

    The investigator may find evidence regarding cause and manner of death; however, when flesh is still found on the bone, the stage of decomposition is noted and time since death may be more effectively narrowed.

    Oh dear...wonder if cause if death cannot be determined.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Wait! Didn't someone say AJ was cremated? Argh. It was in the last thread. I'll see if I can find it...

    ETA: At 0:19 the reporter says "We learned today that AJ's body was cremated."

    Reporting error?

    Well that should prove to be somewhat tricky considering the video report here http://wavy.com/2015/04/18/community...to-aj-hadsell/ at :20 in says she's already been cremated.

    What is the Practice of Forensic Anthropology?
    • The analysis of skeletal, badly decomposed, or otherwise unidentified human remains is important in both legal and humanitarian contexts.
    • Forensic anthropologists apply standard scientific techniques developed in physical anthropology to analyze human remains, and to aid in the detection of crime.
    • In addition to assisting in locating and recovering human skeletal remains, forensic anthropologists work to assess the age, sex, ancestry, stature, and unique features of a decedent from the skeleton.
    Forensic anthropologists frequently work in conjunction with forensic pathologists, odontologists, and homicide investigators to identify a decedent, document trauma to the skeleton, and/or estimate the postmortem interval.

    The facts are now buried amongst theory, opinion and rumor.

    Forensic anthropology includes archaeological excavation, as well as examination of hair, insects, facial reproduction, medicine, but still, the most important job for such a forensic is to identify a decadent body based on the evidence – and there is more use for this than you might think. Regardless of whether the skeleton is fossilized, prehistoric, historic, or modern, and regardless of the conditions in which it was found, the main goals of an osteological analysis are the same: to reconstruct as much as possible about a person’s life from a thorough examination of his or her bones after death.

    More inconsistencies. I wish we could get a straight story from just about anyone in this case.

    Maybe the forensic anthropologist is being brought in to gain a second opinion through photographs?

    This is what I thought also. I think they want to know how long she was there.
    Maybe she was moved.

    Forensic anthropology is the application of the science of anthropology in a legal setting—most often physical anthropology and human biology are used in criminal cases (FBI, CIA and military) where the victim's remains are in the advanced stages of decomposition.

    Would the investigators have the family told that AJ was cremated when in fact they still had the remains? Sounds unethical,

    but this is a murder case and I think that they need to do whatever it is that they have to do to get the guilty party

    I wonder who the source was for information that AJ was cremated. It could have been an honest error and it probably was but it came from somewhere. I don't think anyone would deliberately mislead the public but wow, what a whopper of a mistake.

    Perhaps they have tissue samples and the body has been cremated. They don't say what they need the anthropologist to do for them.
