im writing a murder novel and im stuck. i need ideas for getting rid of human bones.
first i thought of grinding the thinner bones to powder and adding them to plaster so i could re-plaster the walls, but was told by a butcher that the machine would not grind any bones.
any ideas welcome as book nearly finished :?

Animal bones are primarily composed of calcium and phosphate carbonates and other salt-like minerals. Hydroflouric and/or hydrochloric acid should dissolve them quite readily.

right im with you.
how long would it take as the killer has limited time to get the job done and get a flight out. he doing a job for someone else.
would he ba able to put the acid in a normal bath tub?

What about cracking the bones, taking out the marrow and feeding it to the birds. Baking the bones in some ingenious solution which would make them brittle and dark. Then grinding 'em up, and spreading among the flower beds as bone meal. :twisted:

How about grinding the bones as much as possible and mixing them with concrete for a new driveway/pathway/shed/foundation or similar?
