Remains found in St. Charles identified as man who went missing in 2012
HAHNVILLE - Remains found in a wooded area of St. Charles Parish in November belong to an elderly man who went missing during Hurricane Isaac.
The sheriff's office said Friday that Antoine Edmund Sr. was reported missing on Aug. 29, 2012, when it's believed he walked out of the home where he was staying and wandered off during the storm. Edmund was 92 years old at the time and was said to have Alzheimer's.
WWL-TV reports Edmund was identified using LSU's FACES lab, which determined the remains were consistent with Edmund. DNA testing confirmed the results as the remains were matched to Edmund's surviving children.
The remains were discovered Nov. 9 in the woods in Boutte, not far from where he'd gone missing.
No foul play is suspected.
