Particular features of a skeleton discovered near Dade City, Florida, are consistent with the stresses of a life of migrant citrus laboring. In particular, unusual aspects of the right shoulder skeleton are not manifested bilaterally. Ethnographic data, radiographs from a living citrus worker, and the police investigation also support the hypothesis that these remains were derived from an individual who spent significant time as a citrus fruit picker.
