Inside the chill of the county coroner's office, the detective and the forensic anthropologist stood over soot-covered bones arrayed on a metal table. Over two hours, Elizabeth Miller provided a running dialogue for each bone. She picked up one rib after another, studying them for knife scrapes. The bones were those of a boy, perhaps 12 to 15 years old, found in the chimney of an abandoned building in South Los Angeles. The boy wore faded and stained tan jeans and a white shirt, but no shoes.

James Mitsch, the second-ranking official in Hawthorne, has been suspended for 30 days, the maximum period, without pay. City Manager Kenneth Jue said he imposed the penalty but declined to provide the reasons, saying that to do so would be an invasion of Mitsch's privacy. In an earlier interview, however, Jue said it was "more than likely" that he would give Mitsch a 30-day suspension because Mitsch had been insubordinate.
