Century-old cremains create Modesto mystery

About once a month a person dies in Stanislaus County and no one arrives at the Coroner’s Office to claim their body. Often, these are people who have been on county conservatorship, or have relatives who live far away or whom they haven’t talked to in years. For most, next of kin can be located through a little research, but Deputy Coroner Tom Killian got a case last week he knew wouldn’t be quite as easy.
