Leading Expert To Study Mummy

By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A leading Egyptologist is in Wichita this weekend to work on a really cold case.

Bob Brier plans to study a mummy on display at the Museum of World Treasures to see if it's connected to a 3,000-year-old murder plot involving an Egyptian pharaoh.

Brier, a Long Island University professor, is sometimes called

``Mr. Mummy'' after a television special he made a few years ago.

The mummy he's studying at the Wichita museum is known as the ``Braided Lady'' because of her hairstyle.

Brier says he plans to closely examine the Braided Lady's teeth, bones and fingernails in an attempt to learn more about her life.
