    MO - Butler Co., Remains of man & dog w/ TX tag, Aug'14 - Justin Allen

    'Authorities are using dental records to determine if the body found Monday afternoon in a wooded area behind Poplar Bluff Junior High School is that of a Texas man.'

    'Because of the body's advanced state of decomposition, authorities were unable to make an identification based on the ID found with the man's body. A dead dog also was found with it.'

    The dog, which was tethered, had a TX rabies tag and microchip. Police seem to have worked out an identity but have a problem:

    'Investigators, he said, also have located who "we believe to be his father. He is adopted, so no DNA can be obtained [from family members].'

    Because of the advanced decomposition, COD was inconclusive, but police say there were no signs of foul play.

    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance
