Coroner: remains are that of missing man

After an autopsy on human remains found on a Lexington creek, Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn says the body is Darryl Dotson.

The body was found Saturday in Town Branch Creek on Donamire Farm, off of Old Frankfort Pike.

Dotson disappeared while taking a walk in Masterson Station Park in March.

The coroner says circumstantial and and other evidence, along with personal effects, have led medical examiners to make a positive identification.

Ginn says at this time, the cause of death isn't known because of the state of the body when it was found. Ginn says unless more remains are found, it may be impossible to rule on the cause of death.

DNA testing will be conducted in order to identify the remains scientifically.
