Members of the High Point Police Department’s Crime Scene Unit learned forensic anthropological analysis from HPU’s Dr. Michala Stock, assistant professor of exercise science.
HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 10, 2019 – High Point University’s Dr. Michala Stock, assistant professor of exercise science, offered her forensic anthropology knowledge to the High Point Police Department’s Crime Scene Unit on Jan. 9.
Stock teaches human anatomy in HPU’s Congdon School of Health Sciences, and by training and education she is a forensic anthropologist.
Stock presented various aspects of forensic anthropological analysis to the Crime Scene Unit, such as recovery and mapping in outdoor areas, trauma and assessing the biological profile of a victim like age, sex and stature.
“When we respond to process crime scenes involving skeletal remains, Stock’s case experience and expertise in forensic anthropology will be invaluable to the police department’s Crime Scene Unit,” said Amy Wilde, High Point Police Department’s forensic manager. “Stock’s willingness to share her time both in the classroom setting and in the field will take us to a whole new level. We are eager to grow this promising relationship between HPU and the Crime Scene Unit.”
This was the first time Stock gave a forensic anthropological analysis to the police department.
“I am thrilled to have embarked on this partnership with the High Point Police Department and looking forward to continuing to engage in learning opportunities and collaborating with the police department’s Crime Scene Unit,” said Stock.
