Cold Case: Hanover Township Investigation – Maple Hill Cemetery


HANOVER TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)  Investigators hope new technology will help crack a cold case.

A body was exhumed from the  Maple Hill Cemetery in Hanover Township Monday morning.

 Back in 1996, a body was found partially decomposed on top of blanket along interstate 80. 

The remains have never been identified, and the death is considered extremely suspicious.

  A forensic anthropologist from the University of South Florida is assisting in the case.

  He hopes technological advancements will lead to answers in this death.

  We’ll have much more on this cold case investigation on eyewitness news at five.
