A spokesperson for the ACSO said Friday both the ACSO and WFPSO scoured the woods in the Kingston area near where Thornhill’s truck was found. Cadaver-sniffing dogs were also used during the search.

Jessica Guillot disappeared in September of 2013. 5 people were arrested and charged with kidnapping her and assaulting her. Although they have yet to be charged with her murder, LE feels that she was killed and dumped. Her case has gotten almost NO coverage at all. This case happened across the river from where the body was found but I thought it was worth a mention.SwampMama

No answer yet, but the man who discovered the remains believes the decedent is male.
Swan said from what he could tell, it looks like a man's body. "You could still see the clothes they had on; I saw the imprint of a wallet in his pocket," he said.
Swan said he last brush-hogged the same property about a year ago and the remains weren't there.
"(The body) had to be dumped there within that time frame," he said.

Skeletal remains that were found in July near the Old Ferry Landing in St. Francisville, belonged to a man who has been identified as Kenneth Dwayne Bennett, 58, of Baton Rouge...
"A wallet and an ID were found near the remains; however, in order to make a positive identification, we had to wait until we got the official DNA results back before we could release a name," Sheriff J. Austin Daniel said in a news release. "Rushing to put out a name was not in the best interest of the deceased or his family members."
A vehicle identified as belonging to Bennett was found at the bottom of the ferry landing ramp submerged in the Mississippi River in early August. The water level at that time was very low and a boater noticed the submerged vehicle.
