COVINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Authorities say human remains found in far western Indiana are those of an Illinois teenager who vanished in March.
The Journal & Courier of Lafayette reports authorities said Friday that dental records were used to positively identify the remains of 19-year-old Kevin Heinl of Schaumburg, Ill. Bones and articles of clothing were found Tuesday by a man who was spraying a field with weed killer.
Heinl was supposed to be starting a new job at a Schaumburg restaurant when he left home on March 8. Instead, his car was found later that day abandoned in Fountain County under mysterious circumstances a couple of miles from where the remains were found.
Police searched the immediate area at the time but could not locate a driver.
