Remains identified as missing Michigan man
Morehead, Ky. — Remains found in rural northeast Kentucky have been identified as those of a Michigan man reported missing a decade ago.
Rowan County Coroner John Northcutt told WKYT-TV in Lexington that a skull and other bones found earlier this month in the Daniel Boone National Forest are those of Thomas Ray James of Grosse Pointe.
James was 50-years-old when he was reported missing in August 2004.
Police say James’ abandon car was found at a rest area not long after he was reported missing. The remains were found nearby.
Northcutt says the cause of death will be difficult to determine.
