Examination of "skeletonized" or otherwise compromised human remains to assess age, gender, height and ancestry; identify injuries; and estimate the time since death give information that can assist investigators in identifying a victim. In addition, examination of the development, anatomy and any restorative dental corrections of the teeth, such as fillings, can help comparative identification of a person.
