Marcella Sorg featured in the news for forensic work

Policy Center research scientist Marcella Sorg is featured in the Bangor Daily News for her work on forensic identification. An article in the Outdoors section of the BDN highlights Sorg’s work.

Sorg is the only forensic anthropologist with her post-graduate qualifications in northern New England and typically works in Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. She is often called upon for identification of remains found in the woods.

Sorg has also been featured in the news for her work on reporting drug deaths in Maine and Vermont. She currently directs the Policy Center’s Rural Drug and Alcohol Research Program, which monitors epidemiological indicators of substance abuse, particularly drug-related deaths.
