Brown County remains identified

April 26, 2013

A southern Indiana coroner says skeletal remains found at a remote site in Brown County are those of a 26-year-old local woman who vanished two years ago. Brown County Deputy Coroner Earl Piper said that an Indianapolis forensic dentist and anthropologist who examined the remains confirmed they are those of Kate McGrayel, who was reported missing by relatives in April 2010. Two mushroom hunters found the remains in the 2500 block of Wise Hollow Road earlier this month. An official cause of death is expected to be released next week.
