POCATELLO, Idaho (KIFI) - The Pocatello Police Department reports the remains of another individual have been positively identified. At this time, six individuals have been positively identified.
Staff from the Idaho State Police Forensic Services office is assisting detectives in determining the identities of the remaining six unidentified individuals using fingerprints and DNA.
Officers are assisting the Idaho Division of Occupational and Professional Licenses (DOPL) in returning the remains of cremated individuals to next of kin. Contact information for next of kin has been obtained for several sets of remains, and those individuals will begin receiving phone calls from officers or staff from DOPL to make arrangements to receive them. If contacted individuals have additional questions regarding receiving remains, please contact the Pocatello Police Department at 208-234-6121.
Again, the department thanks everyone for their patience and understanding as officers continue to work through the tips and information they’ve received from the public.
