What exactly happened to 23-year-old Daniel Nagy when he took his guitar and went for a walk on Sept. 15, 1995, is a mystery that his sister says she could be living with for many years to come. "Now we know he's not alive anymore. But we don't know, and probably won't know, what happened to him," Lisa Nagy, 29, said yesterday. A skull found this month in a creek bed behind a King of Prussia corporate center has been identified as Nagy's. Montgomery County Coroner Halbert E. Fillinger Jr. made the determination late Friday with the help of a New Jersey specialist in dental forensics after comparing the recovered skull with Nagy's dental records.

Investigators have determined the race, sex and approximate age of the person whose skull washed up last month on a North Wildwood beach. What they still lack is a name. The skull belonged to a white man between 18 and 40 years old, said Donna Fontana, the forensic anthropologist for the New Jersey State Police. A fisherman discovered the skull, its set of upper teeth nearly intact, on Oct. 30 among shells, rocks and seaweed on a sandbar near the mouth of the Hereford Inlet.

A black bear killed by a Pennsylvania hunter in November ties for the record of largest ever taken legally in the world, according to preliminary measurements announced yesterday by the Pennsylvania Game Commission. If the score is corroborated by a panel of judges during the Boone & Crockett Club's next awards program, in 2007, the bear would also tie for third-largest taken by a hunter legally or illegally. The No. 2 world record was killed illegally in Lycoming County, Pa., in 1987.

Every day, they go to the same corner room on the second floor of the Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Center. They sit beside the same bed, peer out the same window past the same inflatable Spiderman, and try to coax a little more life into a man whose mind will never be the same. They've done this for more than a year, ever since a late-night street confrontation cracked Paul Walker's skull. For more than a year, members of the Walker family have bent their lives around their injured brother and son. They've fed him, dressed him and washed him. They've exercised muscles to prevent atrophy, and they've searched for signs of the energetic, outgoing Paul they once knew.

The FBI is conducting DNA tests on a 4-by-4-inch piece of human skull found on the beach in Brigantine Friday on the chance that it is that of Anne Marie Fahey, the Delaware secretary whom prominent Delaware attorney Thomas Capano is accused of killing. FBI and local police officials downplayed speculation that the skull was that of Fahey, 30, a scheduling secretary to Delaware Gov. Tom Carper. She disappeared in June 1996. Prosecutors believe that Fahey's body was dumped in the Atlantic Ocean 60 miles off Stone Harbor on June 28, 1996, one day after the lover she had wanted to leave killed her in a fit of rage.

A district court rang with cries of outrage and sobs of relief yesterday as a 41-year-old Collingdale day-care provider learned she would not have to face trial for injuries to a baby in her care. Nancy Mallon, accused of simple assault and endangering the welfare of a child, listened stoically while District Justice Laurence J. McKeon told the crowded courtroom that there was insufficient evidence to hold her for trial on charges of fracturing the leg and skull of Stephanie Ashworth on Feb. 7. The baby was 4 months old at the time.
