Mid-summer of 1996 in Kennewick, Washington, two men stumbled upon an ancient human skeleton in the Columbian River. What seemed to be a miraculous discovery soon turned into an incessant and relentless battle over the ownership of the remains. “Multiple claimants asset[ed] ownership” of this skeleton, named the “Kennewick Man”: the Native Americans of Washington, Pacific Islanders, and even people of Norse descent of Ireland and Scotland.

The whole process of the Kennewick Man’s discovery opened important questions: Who is the Kennewick Man and why is he so important? Why
Crime has always been a part of the world we live in. Whether it be theft, murder, or kidnapping, it has been and always will be a huge factor in society. With crime, comes forensics; the “behind the scenes” work in all cases. Forensics is described as “relating to the use of scientific knowledge or methods in solving crimes or relating to, used in, or suitable to a court of law” (Crime Museum 1).

The Lindbergh kidnapping was referred to by the press as “The Crime of the Century”. On March 1st, 1932 Charles Lindbergh III was kidnapped at 20 months from his home in Hopewell, New Jersey.

In the still of the night in Hopewell, New Jersey, the Lindbergh family discovered a tragedy. Their precious baby boy was kidnapped from their two-story home. The child’s nurse, Betty Grow, discovered the missing child. As the crime of the century was taking place, the Lindbergh family were devastated that their sweet baby was missing. The police suspected an “inside job,” since the kidnapper knew exactly where the nursery was while the Lindbergh’s baby was peacefully asleep (Perloff 1).

Kathy Reichs is on the Board of Directors for the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and is certified as a forensic anthropologist by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. Much of her knowledge of forensic anthropology comes from personal experience, though she also consults other specialists in both her field and outside of it to ensure accuracy in her novels. Due to her experience and commitment to accuracy, Reich’s novels exemplify real forensic anthropology better than most fictional works. One of her novels, “Bones to Ashes” is a good example of this.
