Police: Remains from Ind. man's yard identifiedRemains found in backyard of Indiana man suspected in 2 deaths identified as missing woman
NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) ' Police say human remains found in a southern Indiana man's backyard have been identified as a woman who has been missing for about a month.
New Albany police Maj. Keith Whitlow says the remains found in William "Clyde" Gibson's backyard Friday night are those of Stephanie Marie Kirk, a 35-year-old Charlestown woman who was last seen March 25. Medical examiners in neighboring Kentucky used dental records and other means to identify the remains.
Gibson is being held without bond at the Floyd County Jail in connection with the death last week of 75-year-old Christine Whitis of Clarksville and the death of 44-year-old Florida hairdresser Karen Hodella, whose body was found in Clarksville in 2003.
Gibson was arrested on drunken driving charges last week after police spotted him driving Whitis' car.
