He was the son of Veronica Skripetz and Michael Olovits. Johannes was Veronica's third child, and definitely not first child to die young either. A CT of the mummy was done recently to find the possible cause of death.The baby had no broken bones and was well nourished by the look of the remains.
Anthropologists Dr. Linda Sutherland and her husband Dr. James Sutherland, suggested that Johannes had died from dysentery, which was an infection in the intestines causing severe diarrhea that caused dehydration. In the 18th century they didn't have fluids to fix the dehydration, therefore baby Johannes probably died from dehydration.
