State Seeks ID On 220 Deceased
Remains Found Between 1986 and 2012
Currently, the medical examiner’s office has 220 sets of remains for unidentified individuals who died in Virginia. Some remains date back to the 1970s.
“We hope that by presenting the facial approximations to the public someone will recognize one of these individuals as his or her long lost loved one,” said Chief Medical Examiner Leah Bush. “We’re working with sheriff’s offices in Alleghany, Carroll, Lee and Pittsylvania counties to help identify these remains, and we encourage anyone with any information on these individuals to contact us.”
Photographs of the facial approximations are available online at http://1.usa.gov/xmVVST. Anyone with information or questions about these individuals should call the Western District Office of the chief medical examiner at 540-561-6615.
