    Authorities Find 37 Bones in Vicinity of Skull

    By Staff Reports
    Published: 12/11/1992
    Last Modified: 2/27/2007 8:19 AM

    A total of 37 bones were found during a search Thursday
    in north Tulsa County after a hunter stumbled across a skull
    the day before, law enforcement officials say.
    The remains have been sent to the State Medical Examiner's
    office.
    Lt. Dick Bishop of the Tulsa County Sheriff's Department
    said investigators combed a wooded area near the 5800 block
    of North Harvard Avenue late Wednesday and Thursday.
    The search turned up a vertebrae, a femur and other long
    bones, apparently the remains of one adult, Bishop said.
    The skull was found Wednesday by a man hunting rabbits.
    The man, a custodian at police headquarters, put the skull
    in a bag and took it to investigators.
    "It's fairly well intact," said Tulsa Police Homicide
    Sgt. Mike Huff.
    Officials said the skull showed no signs of trauma. The
    bones were bleached by sun and water, indicating they had
    been there for some time. No clothing was found in the search
    area.
    Bishop said a cemetery lies about one mile north and a half
    mile east of the discovery. But he said he did not believe
    it was the origin of the bones.
    "I think that would be almost impossible for them to land
    that far away," Bishop said.
    Officials hope that they can discover the sex, age and ethnicity
    of the person. Bishop said his staff will then go back to
    look at missing persons reports logged in the area to determine
    any possible leads.
    If that does not work, he said investigators would attempt
    a facial reconstruction from the skull and hope that through
    the media, leads would develop.

    Skeletal Remains Described

    By Staff Reports
    Published: 2/18/1993
    Last Modified: 2/27/2007 8:19 AM

    Authorities have released a description of a woman whose
    bones were found scattered in a north Tulsa County field on Dec. 9.
    Thirty-seven bones, ranging from a skull to a femur to a
    vertebrae, were discovered in a wooded area near the 5800
    block of North Harvard Avenue.
    The woman was described as black, 18 to 26 years old, and
    about 5-feet 2-inches tall. She had no dental fillings and
    probably had no children, said John Pojman, an investigator
    for the state medical examiner's office.

    One distinguishing piece of clothing found near the skeletal
    remains was a hair clip with three small sea shells attached
    to it, Pojman said. No other clothing was found
    .
    Though the bones were bleached by sun and water, Pojman,
    said "we're putting no time limit on how long they've been out there."
    Officials said the skull showed no signs of trauma.
    The bones were found by a custodian at the downtown police
    station who discovered them while hunting.
    Tulsa County Sheriff's Lt. Dick Bishop said deputies are
    handling the case as a homicide.
    "Until something else comes along to disprove it, we're
    treating it like a homicide," Bishop said. "We've come
    up with nothing so far."
    The sheriff's office has checked with other area law-enforcement
    agencies for reports of a missing woman fitting the description,
    but has found no leads.
    Bishop said officials may attempt a facial reconstruction
    and release a portrait through the media.

    Officers Push for Identity After '92 Bones Discovery

    By Bill Swindell
    Published: 9/2/1993
    Last Modified: 2/27/2007 8:17 AM

    Authorities Wednesday released photographs of a facial reconstruction
    of a woman whose bones were found in a north Tulsa County
    field on Dec. 9, 1992.
    "What we're hoping is that someone will see this and give
    us a call on who she is," said Don Grove, chief investigator
    for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Tulsa. "We're
    just waiting," Grove said.
    Thirty-seven bones - ranging from a femur to a vertebra
    - were discovered near the 5800 block of North Harvard Avenue.
    The bones were found after a man hunting for rabbits in
    the field came upon a skull and took it to police headquarters,
    where he was a custodian.
    The skull showed no signs of trauma, authorities said. The
    bones were bleached by sun and water, indicating they had
    been there for some time.
    The woman is described as black, 18 to 26 years old, about
    5 feet 2 inches tall.
    She probably did not give birth to any children, Grove said.
    A black hair net and a hair clip with three small sea shells
    attached to it were found nearby.
    The woman's death is estimated to have occurred one to six
    years before the discovery of the bones
    , Grove said.
    Deputies are investigating the case as a homicide, though
    no cause or manner of death has been determined, said Tulsa
    County Sheriff's Lt. Dick Bishop.
    "We really don't know how she died, but we'll treat it
    like it is (foul play)," Bishop said.
    The sheriff's office checked other law enforcement agencies
    for reports of a missing woman fitting the description but
    received no leads.
    Though the procedure is expensive, Bishop said he is hopeful
    that the reconstruction can help solve the case.
    The woman's face was reconstructed by a consultant with
    the medical examiner's office in Oklahoma City. The process
    involves rebuilding the face with molding clay using skull
    measurements and some speculation.
    "It's been a tremendous asset for us in the past, so we're
    optimistic that something will come out of this," Bishop
    said.

    I haven't been successful in locating facial reconstruction article, but I've requested it from the ME's office, so we'll see if they have it available or not....

    Remains Found In 1992 Identified As Missing Tulsa Woman


    TULSA, Oklahoma - The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office says human remains found by hunters in December 1992 have been identified as the remains of a missing Tulsa woman.
    TCSO says the remains are Greta Riles, a 43-year-old ex-convict.

    A hunter found the remains in the 5800 block of North Harvard.

    Deputies say due to Riles's lifestyle, her family didn't report her missing until July 2012.

    In 1992, the state Medical Examiner's Office determined the remains were that of a young black female.

    TCSO's Cold Case Task Force took a second look at the case and thanks to a grant from the National Institute of Justice, the remains were sent to the University of North Texas for DNA analysis where they were finally identified.

    The Oklahoma Department of Corrections records show Greta Riles was sentenced to prison in 1989 for drug possession out of Tulsa County. The records show she was released early.
