Forensic Research Noted in Newspaper Report

Research being conducted by UMaine forensic anthropologist Marcella Sorg was mentioned in a Central Maine Morning Sentinel story about a 709-acre tract of land in rural Somerset County, Maine, that will be used as a place for disabled veterans to hunt and a variety of other uses, including Sorg’s research. Sorg, who works with the UMaine-based Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center, said she has placed pig bodies on the property to research how the decompose, which could lead to new findings of how what happens to human bodies in the Maine woods.
