Bones undergo further forensic investigation

The human bones found in sand hills near Nora Creina last October are being subjected to further forensic examination in Canberra.

A member of the public found the bones and they were then taken to laboratories in Adelaide for further scrutiny by anthropologists.

“Initial testing of the remains is inconclusive and a sub-sample of the remains has been sent to Canberra for further analysis which will be conducted in partnership with the National DNA and Unidentified Human Remains Project,” a SA Police spokesperson said.

“As previously advised, there are no signs of violence on the human remains and there is nothing obvious to say the death is suspicious.

“Once we can determine the origins of the human remains or their identity it may assist in identifying the cause and circumstances of the deceased’s death.”

Police have urged anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
