The body of Janet Christiansen Abaroa, 25, Durham, N.C., was exhumed Monday afternoon from the family plot in Brown’s Mill Cemetery. The exhumation was conducted at the request of Durham prosecutors for evidence recovery, and approved by Franklin County Judge Douglas Herman July 9. Abaroa’s husband Raven Abaroa was charged this year with her 2005 murder. Forensic Pathology Associates at Lehigh Valley Medical Center, Allentown, planned to take fingerprints, make casts of her hands, examine weapon markings on the skeleton, and determine if she was wearing contact lenses when she died. The body was to be reinterred Wednesday. Abaroa’s family now lives out of state.
