Mystery Boy in Iron Coffin Identified

Mystery Boy in iron coffin

I won’t spoil the story for you but it involves a boy in a cast iron coffin that resembles a well preserved Egyptian Mummy and the detective work required to identify him.

It’s a story that brought together a team two-dozen-strong consisting of pathologists, forensics and the Smithsonian.

Newsday has the AP wire story by Science Writer Randolph Schmid.
