Body found by hiker is missing scientist

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.
