Doctoral candidate Robin Reineke has written a story for BBC News about her work at the county medical examiner’s office. Robin and forensic anthropologist Bruce Anderson (Ph.D. Arizona, 1998) set up the Pima County Missing and Unidentified Persons Project in 2006 to solve “cold cases” of unidentified migrant bodies. Be sure to read Robin’s BBC News piece, “Arizona: Naming the Dead from the Desert.”
Robin also travelled this week to attend the premiere of the film Who is Dayani Cristal at the Sundance Film Festival. Both Robin and Bruce are in the documentary, and Robin will be speaking at the festival over the weekend.
