    Good grief!!
    Can you turn around in Florida and not stumble over a human skeleton??!!
    Is it just me or is this situatation getting out of hand?
    It would be interesting judging from the topics in many of the forums on this board to see a graph comparing Florida for unidentified remains and missing females and unsolved murders in relation to the other 49 states.

    Bones Found Miami - Cold Case Investigations

    Link are outdated but the quote here confirms that they were in fact human bones and describes how they were found:

    Police confirmed on Thursday night that the bones were, in fact, human remains.
    "I was about to throw up," construction worker James Lemon said. Lemon and his fellow construction worker made the discovery.
    "Then about two feet down in the ground, you see the bag," Lemon said. "It smelled like dog, a dead dog."
    The land filled with brush and debris is registered to I.L. Industries Corporation in Doral.
    According to authorities, they are treating this recovery as a murder case. The construction worker that found the body, said the corpse was inside a plastic bag, badly decomposed, and was wearing a wrist watch

    Has anyone ever died naturally and then put themselves in a bag two feet down in the ground.
