A family is speaking out about the discovery of a loved ones remains. Hikers found the body of Nicole Penix Vanzant earlier this week in the Red River Gorge.

Vanzant's body will be laid to rest near her home once her remains are returned to the family. Though they say finding her body has brought closure, they say justice has yet to be served.

The family is still awaiting answers as to what led to her death.

The Penix family says the funeral arrangements have not been officially set.

The state medical examiner has said it could take weeks before a cause of death is determined.
