Coroner: Autopsy of body found in lake could take 6-8 weeks
COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — Officials say the identification and autopsy of a human body found in Lake Coeur d’Alene could take up to two months.
The Coeur d’Alene Press reports Kootenai County marine deputies located the body a short time after 1 p.m. Thursday near Sun-Up Bay.
Kootenai County Coroner’s Office Deputy Coroner Jo-Ann Porter says an autopsy conducted by the Spokane County Examiner’s Office likely will take between six to eight weeks.
Examiners must use DNA testing to determine if the body is Larry Isenberg, who was reported missing more than two weeks ago by his wife, Laurcene “Lori” Barnes Isenberg.
Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office says the investigation into the death is ongoing.
