BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Human remains found in a sleeping bag in a creek in northern Kentucky have been positively identified.
The Boone County sheriff’s office says the man was 88-year-old William York Sr. of Tipp City, Ohio. Investigators matched a thumb print from York’s Army discharge papers provided by his son.
The remains were found in Gunpowder Creek in Union on June 3.
York disappeared from his home May 30.
