The mystery surrounding the two human skeletons found at the home of a former mortuary worker cleared a bit Saturday when they were found to be classroom specimens that might have been used for teaching decades ago. A coroner's official said an examination of the skeletons showed no foul play. "It's not of forensic interest. It's not a body that was exhumed. They're not Native American remains," said Orange County Deputy Coroner Cullen Ellingburgh.

For Judy Suchey, being a world-renowned forensic anthropologist has led to "some interesting stories and wild times." Suchey, who has spent the past 20 years working in forensics, was one of the first women in the field. An exhibit of her work and the methods she uses is now on display at the Cal State Fullerton Museum of Anthropology. "You have to be flexible to be in forensics," Suchey said during a recent interview at the exhibit.

The skull fragment was described by investigators as about the size and shape of an ice cream bowl. It is the top portion extending down to the forehead, obviously a child's. Is it the remains of Laura Bradbury? As others have many times before in Southern California, investigators asked Judy Suchey to find a clue.

Investigators have released artist renditions of two unidentified bodies, hoping the public will help them name the men. Orange County coroner investigators and artists developed a sketch of one man and a clay model re-creation of the second man's face. The sketch is of a man whose nude body was pulled Monday morning from the waters south of the Newport Jetty. He was 5-foot-11, 160 pounds with brownish red hair, freckles and blue eyes.
