Medical

All remains recovered except the hyoid, C7 vertebra, carpals, tarsals, and the majority of metacarpals, metatarsals, and phalanges of both hands and both feet.

Per Dr. Marcella Sorg; "The remains are those of an adult. The spheno-occipital synchondrosis is fused. Tooth wear is minimal, with no dentin exposure. Cranial suture closure has commenced, but most sutures are open, with a composite score of 6 for the vault sites and 1 for the lateral-anterior sites, suggesting an age range of 20 to 45. The mandibular third molars are unerupted, but the crown is well developed as well as the root. The root tips are not well visualized in the NAMUS dental radiograph images, however the roots appear to be mostly or totally developed. Age at death is estimated at 20 to 45."
