In News

The body found in the wreckage of a small plane South East of Yosemite National Park has been confirmed through DNA testing to be that of missing Steve Fosset.

Independent.co.uk: “A California Department of Justice Forensics lab has determined that items containing DNA – discovered last week – match James Stephen Fossett’s DNA,” the Madera County, California, sheriff-coroner’s office said in a statement.

Office spokeswoman Erica Stuart said the match of the DNA in the bones discovered last Wednesday brings her office’s investigation to an end.

“The coroner’s case is closed,” Stuart said.

Fossett widow Peggy Fossett said in a statement she welcomed the news of the DNA match and awaits the conclusion of the National Transportation Safety Board’s probe into her husband’s crash.
