Decomposed, skeletal, fragmented, incinerated, and non-human remains are examined by the forensic anthropologist. Human remains require a skeletal biological assessment by a trained forensic anthropologist to estimate age, sex, ancestry, stature, trauma, and time since death. Further, the anthropologist collaborates with the forensic dentist, radiologist, and orthopedist in securing positive identification of these individuals. Dr. Murray K. Marks, Professor in the Institute of Human Identification at Lincoln Memorial University’s College of Dental Medicine is the Knox County Regional Forensic Center’s forensic anthropologist. Currently, he is a Diplomate in the American Board of Forensic Anthropology ( see http://theabfaorg/ ), and past Vice President of that organization which has 150 board certified North American members.
