Drayton Archaeology now offers assistance to district attorneys, criminal defense attorneys, law enforcement agencies, medical examiners, and coroners in locating, recovering, analyzing, and identifying human remains.
What We Do
Despite what you may have seen depicted on popular TV shows, the forensic anthropologist’s expertise is needed not only in the laboratory, but also at the scene to properly locate, recover, and handle remains. All too often, and despite best intentions, crime scene investigators and law enforcement professionals regularly and unintentionally compromise their cases when mistakes are made in the recovery of remains. Bones can be small, irregular, fragmented, burned, and otherwise altered; often mistaken for rocks and twigs. If improperly handled or left uncollected, evidence from skeletal remains can be damaged or lost. Perhaps your agency just spent valuable time and resources recovering the remains of deer, bear, or other non-human animal misidentifying it for the remains of a local missing person. Whatever your needs, Drayton will work with your agency to help your investigations move forward.
Contact us today and we will immediately assign one our professionals to discuss the specifics of your case.
