The Office of Chief Medical Examiner of the City of New York is seeking the help of New York Area dentists

 

The Office of Chief Medical Examiner of the City of New York is seeking the help of New York Area dentists to assist in identifying the skeletonized remains found March 16, 2000 near the old Flushing Airport (28th Ave and Linden Place in Queens). Anthropologically, the remains are those of a 20 to 30-year-old European (white) male.  It is believed that this individual likely died between 1990 and 1999 based on the personal effects found with the body and the skeletonized status of the remains on the date of discovery.  The decedent had a surgically repaired (plates and screws) healed fracture of his left elbow (humerus).
