Hyoid Bone

Hyoid Bone

          Starrs, James E. “Foreword” Forensic Science. 2nd ed. New York: Taylor and Francis, 2005.



All the signs presaged well-

preserved remains.

The soil was sandy

permitting water to drain


readily through it.

 The coffin and vault were,

although not impervious

to the intrusion

of water, the highest quality

to predict safely. Water

would not have invaded but


a negligible degree.

Embalming remains

adequate, no sources of leakage


other than those created.

Such was not to be

the fact. A fair to good

preservation, hair was


secured. Presumptive stains,

the result of a plastic bag.
