Medical Examiner identifies Palmgren remains
(WRCB) - A Medical Examiner has confirmed the remains found on Signal Mountain are those of Gail Palmgren.
Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond announced Monday that the remains were positively identified through the use of dental records.
The remains were found Friday morning, approximately 100 yards from where deputies discovered Palmgren's Jeep a day earlier.
Investigators were able to tentatively identify the body based on personal items found nearby.
Over the weekend, experts from the University of Tennessee Forensic Anthropology Center, popularly known as the "Body Farm", recovered and cataloged the remains on the mountainside.
