Police believe remains found two weeks ago in Macoupin County are that of 24-year-old Joseph Wilson of Royal Lakes, but the process of confirming that could still be a couple of weeks away. DNA testing is being conducted, but how long it takes for those results to come back varies, according to the Macoupin County Sheriff.
DNA testing is necessary since no dental records are available. Wilson had never been to a dentist. Sheriff Shawn Kahl tells The Big Z no scenario is being ruled out.

Investigators say they believe they know who Wilson was with when he disappeared, but urges anyone with information on the case to call the Macoupin County Sheriff's Office at 217-854-3135.
