The state presented pictures of Christian Aguilar’s remains as Dr. Martha Burt gave testimony on her examination of the body.
Burt is an associate medical examiner for the 8th District, which includes Alachua County.
Burt recalled going to the wooded area in Levy County where Christian Aguilar’s remains were found “partially skeletonized.”
The state presented photos of the remains in which Burt described a “gray, duct tape like material” that was found looped around the wrists, the neck and ankles of the body.
Burt said a comparison of dental records with the remains was used to positively identify Aguilar.
The medical examiner report states that the cause of death was homicide by unspecified means.
