Linda Anderson, Public Information Officer for the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's office, says positive identification may not come for some time, if ever due to the condition of the remains. She noted that DNA testing will be the only means by which an I.D. can be determined.
Anderson further stated that the age of the body is not know, but appears to be that of a fully-clothed elderly man.
She went on to say that there were no other items found with the remains.
Law enforcement sources were speculating that the remains could have been that of Hailey Dunn, a teen missing from Colorado City since late 2010. Some reports even claimed that it was 'highly likely' that the remains would be identified as the girl.
The remains were discovered less than a mile from the area where the last person to see Dunn alive had been the day she went missing.
