Anthropology-Cold Cases
This week’s University Beat on WUSF-TV takes you to a cemetery where a USF anthropologist is joined by a team of students in helping Saint Petersburg Police excavate a trio of long-buried bodies, which will hopefully finally give the families of these unnamed murder victims some sense of closure.

Anthropology-Cold Cases

In an effort to find out the identities of three murder victims, including one who was killed over 40 years ago, the Saint Petersburg Police turn to forensic anthropologists from USF for help. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM takes you to an excavation that will hopefully “warm up” these cold cases.
