    Abstract

    The case reported here documents how comparative data gleaned from study of museum collections enabled positive identification of an American Indian homicide victim through radiograph comparison. In particular, the shape of the lateral border of the scapula proved to be a unique anatomical feature, appropriate for establishing positive identification.
