Uprooted Tree Reveals Skeletal Remains

Frankenstorm, indeed. A homeless woman in New Haven, Conn., found skeletal remains on Tuesday after Hurricane Sandy uprooted a giant tree. The back of a skull was visible— with its mouth still open— in the tree. The skull was still connected to a spine and a rib cage. New Haven Sgt. Anthony Zona said the body “has probably been there a long, long time,” and some investigators said it could date back centuries. By Tuesday night, a death investigator had sawed off a root that was in the way, but officials say exhuming the remains could take days.
