No ID yet of human remains found in Scurry County last month
Identification could still take weeks, months, officials say
Still no word as to the identity of human remains found March 16 near Lake JB Thomas – southwest of Snyder – in Scurry County.
“Nothing to report today,” FBI spokeswoman Katherine Gilkinson Chaumont said Wednesday in an email to KTXS.
Asked when such information could be forthcoming, she said, “Please keep in mind that the initial guidance was that it could take weeks to months for an identification to be made.”
Eighteen days have passed since a yet-to-be-identified individual came across the remains and called police.
Texas Rangers, the Department of Public Safety and Scurry County authorities have been participating in the investigation. Also spotted at the scene where the remains were found were representatives of Mitchell County. Hailey Dunn, who has been missing since late 2010, is from Colorado City in Mitchell County.
Lake JB Thomas is about 100 miles south of Lubbock, 90 miles west of Abilene and 70 miles northeast of Midland.
