University of Houston-Victoria students Mary Adkins, left, and Alejandro Sueiro practice processing a mock crime scene last week in a field near UH Sugar Land.

Six students from Victoria, Cinco Ranch and Sugar Land exhumed replica skeletal remains and identified gender, age, time of death, cause of death and ethnicity.

The students are part of a new "Anatomy and Forensic Anthropology" class taught by Jeffrey Ricken, a podiatric surgeon and adjunct lecturer in the University of Houston-Victoria School of Arts and Sciences.

The class is offered to students pursuing the forensic and biomedical science concentration of the master of arts in interdisciplinary studies.
