    I am hoping they are able to find the maxilla and mandible. They might be able to get a DNA sample if they did right?

    No DNA possible? Seriously? That explains the lack of rule outs then :( I hope they find out the maxilla and mandible weren't cremated too. Also, why no recon/clothing pics? Surely they took pictures?
