Case History
The bones were excavated from a cinder cone on August 31, 1999, near the Waokele Forest Reserve, where residents suspected marijuana cultivation. The remains include the partial skull, a foot, pelvic bones, leg bones, an arm, a wrist and three vertebrae. A forensic pathologist examined the bones and found no sign of foul play.
The area in which the remains were found is located in an area bordering on the reserve. The land was purchased in 1995, and a former public access road in the area was sealed.
