GASCONADE COUNTY - Human remains recovered by divers last Wednesday have been identified as James H. Holt Jr.
Holt, 60, was reported missing last Tuesday.
On Wednesday, divers discovered human remains in a clay pit pond located in Owensville, Missouri.
Other unidentified human remains were recovered in the same pond along with Holt's. Holt also was identified then as a person of interest.
According to a Facebook post from Gasconade County Sheriff's Office, investigators are awaiting complete autopsy reports. The sheriff's department said last week only that there was unspecified "evidence of an apparent homicide."
