CASE #8

An apparent suicide sparked an investigation in North Attleborough on April 11, 2007, when a man walking his dog found a man’s body in the woods off Grandview Drive.

“They came across a deceased person, who the autopsy revealed had hanged himself,” Quinn said.

The medical examiner determined the victim was a Caucasian man, between 40 and 50 years old, with dark brown hair that hard started to gray, and a mustache and a goatee. He was described as approximately 5 feet, 5 inches tall with a moderate build.

They also learned the victim’s body was found several months after he died by suicide.

The only evidence police found on the victim was a small amount of cash and a pair of reading glasses.

“North Attleborough is close to Rhode Island, so information was put out through the media to see if the individual may have been connected to Rhode Island,” Quinn said. “DNA was taken, but to this day, there has been no connection to anyone and there has not been an identification.”
 
I have. It doesn't mean anything to do with bandages and ancient Egypt. It's referring to how a body has changed after death. Mummification can be caused by a number of different environmental factors.
I know it's not like The Mummy, I just had difficulty picturing natural mummification when a body is out in a temperate forest.

I'm sure there's plenty out there to read, but I'm not sure whether you actually want me to look for links... I am aware that most people aren't as interested in the science of death as I am.
