Police tape was put in where the bone was found and the parking lot that is across from the marching band practice field. A forensics team has been called in to determine who the person is, the age of the remains, if there was any foul play, any additional bones, and any additional evidence. The area will be treated like a crime scene until further notice.

Could the bones be from the missing Jimmy Hoffa? Maybe a missing professor or faculty member? Could the bones be from a missing student from the past or a stranger where something went wrong on the campus? With the modern-day technology of forensics, the possibilities could be endless but hopefully, police, the campus, and the rest of us will have the proper answers.
