The article focuses on identifying the body of a women through dental records. An unidentified body was found on May 4, 1984 in Vernon County, Wisconsin. The body has complete dentures. The mandibular alveolar ridge depicted marked resorption, both radiographically and clinically. The identifying mark was placed at the time the denture was created and appears to be p85 or p8s. It is considered that this number was inscribed on the cast and was supposed to be 289, which may be a case number assigned by a dental laboratory.
