Extracted DNA profiles reveal more about unidentified bones found near Barron

The Barron County Sheriff's Office is learning more about human bones found in 2017 near Barron, Wisconsin.

The unidentified bones were found on Dec. 4, 2017 south of Barron, according to a press release. Authorities sent the remains to the University of North Texas to extract DNA profiles.

The data revealed the person was likely a man of European or possibly Asian ancestry, aged between 35 to 55 years old and was around 5 feet 10 inches tall, plus or minus four inches.

The department is also working with the DNA Doe Project in California, which uses genetic genealogy to identify Jane and John Does. 

A lab in Oklahoma City will be creating a forensic genealogy build based on the DNA profiles.
