    Skull and Bones Identified
    Friday, February 24, 2006

    Investigators have preliminarily identified the human skull and bones dug up by a dog in a southwest Gainesville neighborhood on Wednesday. Officials say the remains are that of Kevin Smetzer. Detectives still do not know the cause of death but do believe he went missing in late summer or early fall of 2005. No missing persons report was filed by Smetzer's relatives. The remains are being examined by University of Florida's Forensic Anthropology Unit to receive positive identification.

    How sad, his own brother didn't even know he was missing. I take it they weren't very close.
