FILE -- In this photo taken March 7, 2012, and provided by Sandy Buckley, an ear bone from an orca whale is dissected by Joe Gaydos, director and chief scientist of the SeaDoc Society, at the University of Washington Friday Harbor Labs, in Friday Harbor, Wash. When the 3-year-old endangered orca washed ashore in Washington state battered, bloodied and bruised in February of 2012, her death fueled a mystery over what killed her. Two years later, investigators say they don't know for certain what caused blunt force trauma to the animal's head and neck. (AP Photo/Sandy Buckley, File)
