Dr. Lori Baker, Biological Anthropologist
Thursday, April 9th at 3:00 p.m.
Baylor University anthropologist Dr. Lori Baker, who was featured on the National Geographic Channel series, The Decrypters, took 18 students to a Texas border town to help identify those that died while crossing the Mexico-Texas border last summer. In May, Dr. Baker will return to the border to continue exhuming remains in an effort to identify the unknown.
Baker, who was instrumental in developing a missing person's database with Mexico, works on behalf of her program called "Reuniting Families." She, along with her team, exhumes bodies at pauper's cemeteries and conducts DNA tests in an effort to identify the unknown. Currently, this is the only field school of its kind where students are able to work on identifying the undocumented population that died while crossing the border to repatriate their remains to their families in Mexico.
