Clyde Snow, 86, a forensic anthropologist who worked on cases including the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and mass graves in Argentina, has died. His wife, Jerry Snow, said her husband had lung cancer and emphysema and died Friday at Norman Regional Hospital in Oklahoma.

Mr. Snow examined mass graves in Bolivia, Peru, Croatia, and elsewhere. He often helped build criminal cases against government leaders who carried out the killings. He also assisted in identifying victims of the Oklahoma City bombing and serial killer John Wayne Gacy. - AP
