S. Carolina coroner identifies bones dug up by pet dog
SENECA, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina coroner says the human remains found by a pet dog last month have been identified.
News outlets report the remains were identified as 55-year-old Teresa Marlene Hatchell Sell. She formerly lived in Easley and at one time with her sister in Seneca.
A Saturday report from Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis says South Carolina Law Enforcement Division matched Sell’s DNA in a FBI database.
Addis says more tests are being performed to determine Sell’s death. An autopsy done last month was inconclusive. Addis still believes Sell most likely died within the past few months but not longer than a year.
