I heard about students from our local university going up to help a sheriff’s office in another county crack a 30-year-old cold case. Six students in a forensic anthropology class at Florida Gulf Coast University went to Martin County to help authorities unearth the remains of two unidentified infants.
One of the children is Baby Moses, a child who was thrown into the river and drowned the day he was born. Authorities later buried the child in an unmarked grave. When the case was reopened this fall, detectives decided they needed to exhume Baby Moses to collect potential DNA evidence.
The story I got to write took a look at the cold case itself as well as the graduate program at FGCU. What these students do is so neat and to be able to practice it first hand as a student is even cooler. I’m really happy with how this centerpiece turned out.
