This certainly looks to be Amos Shook. Hopefully it will not take long for a positive identification to be made.

Sheriff's Lt. Aaron Barlowe said the remains are being sent to the state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy. Medical examiners will try to use dental records for a positive identification, but may need to use DNA testing that could take weeks.

"Circumstantially, everything points to it being Mr. Shook, but we can't conclusively say that yet," he said Thursday.
