Criminal Justice Quote: Headless Man Found in Wyoming

     Authorities in Wyoming are hoping that a unique belt and buckle will help them solve a murder mystery. The Park County Sheriff's Office released a photograph of the belt, which was found on the headless body of a man who died of multiple gunshot wounds. Because the man was decapitated, authorities are having a tough time trying to identify him….

     The design of the belt and buckle has been identified as similar to "piteado," a type of craftsmanship common to some parts of Mexico and Guatemala….Over the weekend, deputies and specially-trained dogs searched in and around the crime scene to locate the missing body part. They found no evidence. According to the final report from the forensic pathologist, the dismemberment occurred post-mortem….
