That’s because Ross’ lab holds the contract with the Department of Health and Human Services to handle forensic anthropology casework for the State of North Carolina. Her group handles around 30 cases per year, using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to identify victims and determine what kind of tools were used in their deaths or dismemberments.
