Forensics experts in the Washoe County Sheriff's Crime Lab are examining DNA samples from a body found in Churchill County yesterday. Two local agencies with missing persons cases are anxiously awaiting those results.
The initial speculation centered around a missing Carson City woman, Bertha Anguiano.
And Carson Detectives are hopeful an identification may help solve the Anguiano case. The remains were found in the desert about a mile north of U-S 50 West of Fallon yesterday.
Today an autopsy was performed at the Washoe County Coroner's Office, but the partial skeleton told authorities little and provided no definite clues to their identity.
Coroner Vern McCarty said although teeth were recovered, there are no dental records
