What would a dead body look like after being buried for 22 years?

Assuming standard modern burial (embalming, casket) in a temperate environment. Will their bodies ever return to nature?

    You don't really "return to nature" if you're encased in a modern casket. The old wooden ones would allow for that though.

    Unless mummified and a casket completely sealed from external air/environment, a skeleton remains.
