WINFIELD, Kansas (AP) – Cowley County authorities say human remains discovered near Winfield in March were those of a homeless man originally from New Mexico.
The sheriff’s office said in a news release Monday that DNA testing showed the remains were those of 38-year-old Adam Tyler Miller.
Authorities say Miller had been staying in the Arkansas City and Winfield area. He was arrested for trespassing twice in September 2012 but had no contact with law enforcement since then.
Miller told officers he was homeless and suffered from several medical conditions. The sheriff’s office says Miller left his home and family members in Albuquerque, N.M., five years ago and had not contacted them since then.
Investigators found no evidence of foul play. Investigators are seeking information about Miller’s movements since Sept. 12, 2012.
