In order to satisfy the requirements for the Master of Arts (MA) degree in Forensic Anthropology, this professional project will examine the human skeletal remains of UMFC Case #141. This professional paper consists of the various and diverse range of forensic methods employed in order to gain insight into the biological profile of the individual such as age, sex, ancestry, stature, trauma and pathology, in addition to a skeletal inventory of the skeletal remains and an assessment of the minimum number of individuals (MNI) represented in this case.

The human skeletal remains of UMFC Case #141 are consistent with that of an adult male of probable Asian ancestry, with a likely stature between 4 foot 4 inches and 5 foot 3 inches and an overall age range estimation of 30 to 50 years at the time of death.
