LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (KRQE) – DNA tests confirm a body found on the San Ildefonso Pueblo near Los Alamos is a missing LANL scientist.
Michael Cannon went missing the day before the big Las Conchas Fire nearly three years ago.
The fire forced a major evacuation of the town which hampered the search to find him.
Last summer a hiker found remains on BIA land.
DNA tests were done and police confirm they are Cannon’s.
How he died isn’t known.
