HEBRON, Ky. (AP) - A northern Kentucky man whose remains police
believe were found in an Indiana forest is described as a brilliant but reclusive mathematician by his former co-workers.
People who worked with Walter Sartory at Oak Ridge National Laboratories in Tennessee say he helped design centrifuges used in
medical research and wrote scientific papers on the subject.
The Kentucky Enquirer quotes former co-worker John Eveleigh as
describing Sartory as a "brilliant man" at work but a loner.
Police investigators think the 73-year-old Sartory was killed and that his burnt remains were found in a remote section of a forest near Indianapolis.
A northern Kentucky woman and her son were charged in Sartory's
Willa Blanc was arraigned Tuesday on kidnapping and other charges. Her son, Louis Wilkinson, will be arraigned later.
