Smile Forensic Science!?

How can bones be used to determine the age, gender, and ethnic background of a crime victim?

Talking Helping Is My Thing

So you want to know how to identify peoples age and gender by there Bones and i think i can help you.

First of all you can tell the age of a person by the diameter and length of the bone structure.

An easy way to figure out a persons gender is to look at certain parts of the body. For example when you look at a males torso it is more concaved and pointing inward than a female

You can tell the age by observing the stablity of the bone. but Grinner basicly answered your question.
Have you ever felt being tested?
asking Him what to do.
And in your heart,
He's telling you,
"Have faith my little children
and keep your souls clean and new."
For when you least expect it,
I will make my big debut
Follow me to the heavens,
and to your small world, say adieu.

Prepare for judgment day.
