Human Jawbone

Winona County authorities are still waiting for the results of tests on a human jawbone discovered on a Mississippi River island last summer.
Sheriff Dave Brand said the jawbone fragment was sent to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension for DNA testing but the results continue to be delayed.

Brand said he had hoped to have the results by the end of last year but the B-C-A has been busy with other investigations and has not completed testing.

Brand said it's hoped that if any DNA is found on the jawbone it can be used to determine who and where the fragment came from.
