Utah (AP) - FBI investigators say they are 99 percent certain human remains found last month in eastern Utah are those of a Colorado woman missing since 2003.
Grand County Sheriff Jim Nyland says DNA tests identified the remains as 24–year–old Leann Emry of Centennial, Colo.
Sheriff's Deputies and FBI agents discovered the remains March 11 in the Bookcliffs.
They were directed there by 42–year–old Scott Lee Kimball, who drew a map of the area and marked it with the initials of Emry and 25–year–old Jennifer Marcum of Denver, also missing since 2003.
Kimball, of Colorado, is a former FBI informant who is serving a prison sentence after convictions for theft and being a habitual offender.
He has not been charged with a crime in either the Emry or Marcum case.
