Man claims body found near Clover Island was his son
UPDATE KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Benton County Coroner John Hansens says his office finally received dental records of a missing Kennewick man they think may be who the remains found on Clover Island belong to.
A dentist trained in forensics will arrive Tuesday to see if the records match the jaw of the skeletal remains.
Police have a good idea of who the body belongs to, but at this point they are still waiting for dental records. However, KNDU spoke with a Kennewick man who lives in the area and believes the body found was his son.
He didn't give his name, but says his son went missing about 2 years ago. The man says a couple of years ago his son got arrested for a DUI and never showed up to court and shortly after he disappeared. He also tells KNDU that detectives came to his home after the body was found to ask him questions.
