Examiners Working To ID Human Remains

There's still no word on the identity of remains found by a hunter over the weekend in McCreary County.

The Kentucky Medical Examiner's Office says they have not been able to make a positive identification yet and there's no timetable on how long it may take.

So far, no dental records have been available. Police say the remains are that of a female teenager.

The family of Crystal Marler,.who's been missing since 1998, tells 27 NEWSFIRST they are holding out hope the remains are hers, but they've been told the skull had teeth with 2 fillings in it and they don't remember Marler having any fillings.
