From as early as 1876, there were rumors of ghosts inhabiting the building that now houses the Cincinnati Symphony, so when a night watchman would tell of his sightings nearly 100 years later, many thought he was just adding to lore. But then in 1988 when construction workers were working in one of the elevator shafts, they uncovered hundreds of pounds of skeletal remains in an underground crypt. Dr. Elizabeth Murray was eventually entrusted with the bones and set about to solve the mystery; how did these bones end up where they did and who might these individuals be? Records would eventually indicate that the original building that would eventually become today's Music Hall was built atop the city's nineteenth century public burial ground for commoners and indigents. The bones themselves would paint a picture of Cincinnati's first settlers. On this episode of Skeleton crew, Dr. Elizabeth Murray will take us back in time and tell us how she, as a forensic anthropologist, along with the assistance of a small crew of experts, was able to solve this mystery

In November 1873, a party of 21 prospectors left Salt Lake City and headed towards the mountains. Two months later, they arrived at the Ute Indian encampment where they were urged to wait out the winter. After two weeks, 6 men including 23-year old Alferd Packer who acted as their guide, decided to try to make it to an Indian agency 75 miles away. 65 days later, only Alferd Packer arrived at the agency. Over a year later the remains of the missing men were found and by now Packer had told two different versions of what had happened. Whether he murdered them all or claimed to have killed only one in self-defense, what he never denied was that he ate one of the men. Since there was no law on the Colorado books for cannibalism, Packer was arrested for first-degree murder. Due to legal technicalities, it would take two trials to convict Packer (of 5 counts of manslaughter) and sentence him to 40 years in prison. In July of 1989, law and forensic Professor James Starrs of George Washington University decided to try to prove which version of Packer's tale was indeed the true one. He led a team including archaeologists and forensic anthropologists and unearthed the 5 graves. He hoped by studying the bones, the truth of how these men died would finally be revealed. The bones were taken to the anthropology lab at the University of Arizona where forensic anthropologist Dr. Walter Birkby and a small team studied them. With the evidence uncovered from the bones, Starrs concluded that Packer was a "murdering cannibal and liar." On this episode of Skeleton Crew, Dr. Elizabeth Murray will re-examine the evidence and documentation taking a closer look at the most recent conclusions of the forensic anthropological studies to see which version of Alferd Packer's story may be closer to the truth

Guatemala for nearly 36 years was also a country ripped apart by a brutal civil war between the military government and the rural Mayan population. In 1996, the United Nations brokered the final cease-fire. Mass graves now mar the countryside and efforts sanctioned by the present government have been underway to uncover, identify and properly rebury the dead. Dr. Clyde Snow, a world-renowned forensic anthropologist, has been traveling to Guatemala since 1991, when he first trained local archaeology students and helped set up a forensic lab in Guatemala City. He has invited Dr. Elizabeth Murray to observe and join in on the work being done by the crew there. Snow and Murray will travel into the jungle where one of the Guatemalan teams is presently excavating a mass grave site. They will also spend time in the lab in Guatemala City where Dr. Murray will have an opportunity to examine some of the remains and talk with various "technicians" about the forensic anthropological methods they use to aid in their identifications. For the Mayan survivors, it is of the utmost importance to them that the victims be identified, their injuries noted, and that proper burial take place. For this reason, after remains are studied and documented by the anthropology teams, a repatriation and reburial ceremony is carried out. Dr. Murray, joined by some members of the Guatemalan crew, will be present for one of these solemn testimonials to the importance of this work. On this episode of Skeleton crew, though decades may have passed, the bones are alive with many stories to tell

"Contemporary art speaks directly to the important questions of our time as well as to the changing landscape of American identity. By making new ideas, current issues, and forgotten histories visible, living artists show us new perspectives about ourselves and the world around us. As a reflection of contemporary society, the art of our time is relevant to all subject areas and disciplines, and provides teachers and students a rich resource through which to consider new ideas and rethink the familiar. Each program opens with an introduction by a celebrity host (Jane Alexander, Margaret Cho, Merce Cunningham, or John Waters) who, while well known in each of their respective fields of filmmaking, music, and the theatre, is also passionate and knowledgeable about contemporary art. Each one-hour program has been curated like an art exhibition and is loosely structured around a theme that enables viewers, students, and teachers to analyze, compare, and contrast the featured artists and their works. The work presented in the series may cross the thematic boundaries of each program hour and have relevance to more than one theme. The Season Two themes are Stories, Loss & Desire, Humor, and Time."
