    Angela Hernandez, 90, speaks during an interview with Reuters, outside her house, which was damaged by an earthquake on Tuesday, in the village of Huixtepec in the Mexican state of Guerrero March 21, 2012. Dozens of families cleared rubble from their destroyed homes in southwestern Mexico on Wednesday following a major 7.4-magnitude earthquake that caused landslides, knocked down school walls and cracked a church tower. Hernandez was forced to sleep outdoors by the quake in Huixtepec, which was the hardest-hit place in Guerrero with about 40 percent of its homes severely damaged and only about one in five unscathed, according to the local navy commander.

Robinson donated her body for research at the school. What they're finding at the research facility debunks some of what they and other experts believed about estimating time of death for a person whose remains are found outdoors and exposed to the environment.

    In this 2006 photo provided by the National Park Service, tourists climb Half Dome at Yosemite National Park, Calif. A climb up Half Dome was once only for the most seasoned outdoors people, but in recent years tourists and weekend warriors have been scaling the steep granite slope with the aid of steel cables. When daily traffic on the route reached 1,200 in 2009 and hikers routinely backed up like cars at rush hour, park officials realized something had to be done. (AP photo/National Park Service)

    File-In this Tuesday Oct. 11,2011 file photo U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar speaks at the American Wind Energy Association's annual Offshore Wind Power Conference. A new Interior Department report identifies 101 high-priority conservation projects across the nation as part of America?s Great Outdoors Initiative. Salazar says he doesn?t know the total cost of the projects, but the report says the federal agency won?t be able to fund most of them ?given the fiscal constraints facing the federal government."
