Dead guy’s health only slightly worse than when he was alive

The Humboldt County Coroner’s Office is looking for additional clues to assist in the identification of human remains found Sunday in a creek bed off of Myrtle Avenue in Eureka.

“The deceased appears to be an adult male with an old leg fracture, a three-inch-by-four-inch healed bone flap consistent with recent brain surgery, half of a jaw, and only one tooth,” said Deputy Coroner Charles Van Buskirk.

“In most places, that’d probably be enough for a positive ID,” he said, “but in Eureka that description fits half the population.”


Make that Eureka and Lake Elsinore, Texas. (Why won’t anyone hit this link? It’s totally awesome and not porn. Promise!)

  1. You shouldn’t make fun of poor people who die, probably from cortisol and not listening to me. Any comment that does not recognize the truth of what I say will not be read or acknowledged or anything else. Besides, Heraldo loves me.

  2. Uh, what?

  3. Sorry, I am a whack-ass Heraldo-ite.

  4. Oh, they finally found the old Mayor.

    Jane, that would be heraldista. Heraldoite is a mineral from South America.

  5. was it a molar?
