"Bigfoot bones?" TBKR
LOL, finally, the proof we've all been waiting for! Wonder if they can get a shoe size?

he bones are scattered. Animals gnaw on the bones, distorting them, the elements deteriorate them. No medical examiner in their right mind would make any sort - piene2"
Good point...hadn't thought about the gnaw factor. I had thought of scattered and skeletal, but not gnawing & elemental deterioration. That makes sense.

It has always been my contention that Kelli's body was discarted somewhere along I-95 although it can never be proven since her body probably became a meal for an alligator or some animal.
My commentt may have some readers that disaprove of it but the question still stands, "What happened to Kelli"?

"not sure what takes them so long to figure out if they are human are not, anyone that knows the human body should know what a human bone looks like
Dead bodies rot away to skeletons. The bones are scattered. Animals gnaw on the bones, distorting them, the elements deteriorate them. No medical examiner in their right mind would make any sort of determination without testing. However anyone who is enough of an expert as to be able to identify bones by just looking at them should offer their services to the forensics community.

WHAT kind of animal was THAT? that's scary stuff there.

This IS truly bizarre...unless it's just a fibula or some phalanges or something really small I can't understand why this would be reported at all if they are not human. Perhaps an extra-terrestrial? Kidding....

That was what I did not understand. I would think that the coroner, who I am sure they called out would have been able to tell if the remains were not human due to look, size etc....I do hope though that it is not human, because the news of that to anyone's family would be horrible, especially at this time of year.

they don't look like deer bones, and to my knowledge we don't have an abundance of monkeys or apes roaming the woods around here.
