A ten year old missing person case from Beaumont has been solved after DNA testing of remains found last year in Chambers County’s Turtle Bayou positively identify Dennis Lynn Graham as the victim.

Mike Wheat of the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release Monday that several agencies were involved in this investigation, including the Chambers County Sheriff Office, Texas Parks and Wildlife, Jefferson County Morgue, Missing Persons Clearing house, DPS Special Crimes Services and University of North Texas (who performed the DNA testing.)
