Natrona County Coroner Working On Identifying Body Found Near Casper Mountain
The Natrona County Coroner's Office has collected the remains of a body found at the base of Casper Mountain and now it's a matter of identifying who it is.
"We're at this point trying to work on a process of making a positive identification first. It is a complete human remains, and I will take the body to autopsy on Thursday (May 7th) and at autopsy, it's just a tool I use to help me determine a manner and a cause of death."
County Coroner Connie Jacobson says it's too early to tell if the deceased was a man or a woman, but estimates it was an adult, between five to six feet tall.
She adds there was not a complete dental set available, but enough was there that could aid in identification.
The body was found Sunday afternoon by two hikers in the Wolf Creek Area, southwest of the west Casper Walmart.
The Natrona County Sheriff's Office says it's too early to tell if foul play was involved.
