    The bones were of an adult human, but it was not revealed why the body was exhumed.

    It said in the article that her family wanted to move her to a different town, the coffin broke apart while she was being moved. I'm guessing that family members had moved away from the town she was buried in and they wanted to have her more local.

    The article doesn't say that the family member, a woman who died of cancer in 1970, was in the coffin. It does say that the medical examiner is attempting to determine the cause of death of the adult human bones that were in a plastic bag and fell out of the coffin when it broke apart on the bottom and side.
    So there can be an assumption that the coffin held the family member plus the bones.

    The family wanted to move their loved one to a family plot, the reason for the move.
    I can't imagine how I would feel if that happened to me. My loved one sharing her resting place with some unknown person, even if they were seperated by plastic.

    Would being placed in a plastic bag prevent a body from decomposing?
    I know that sounds like a stupid question, but I thought I'd throw my stupidity out there anyhow...
    My Opinion Only..MOO

    Yes, I guess I did assume it, thinking that if the woman's body was missing, the article would've mentioned it. You're right. I hope they're extracting DNA from those unidentified bones...
