Thank you to all our readers who have joined us the past few years to learn more about forensic archeology, forensic anthropology and specifically the work that we’ve been doing to assist in the exhumation and identification of unknown migrants that have died in Brooks County Texas.  We plan on updating the blog at least once a month until our next human rights trip next summer.  Keep in mind the work towards identifications never stops!   Skeletal analyses at various institutions and human rights campaigns  continue all year.

We would like to know what you are interested in reading about. Do you want to know more about the specific techniques we use, the NamUs database, our lab, our university program, our crew? Please send your questions to Dr. Latham at  We look forward to hearing from you.
