I hope someone can clear this up for me. I haven't been able to find a reference to a shoelace being found as part of the items. Was that just speculation or is that mentioned in a resource I can't find? The only thing I found listed explicitly was bones. But I saw explicit references to bones and other items, so unless it's just poor reporting, there should be something else. Presumably, the non-bone items could not be immediately identified (so, not a cell or ipod) because the bones had to be tested to see if the items had any relevance to the case.
