ENON, Mo. (AP) - A body found by a hunter in central Missouri has been identified as that of a Jefferson City man, but authorities don’t know how or when he died.

The Jefferson City News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1wu6EBq ) dental records confirmed the remains as those of 32-year-old Cody Odean Thirlwall. A hunter discovered them Aug. 9 in rural Moniteau (MAH’-nuh-taw) County near Enon (EE’-nuhn), about 20 miles south of Jefferson City.

Missouri Highway Patrol Sgt. Kevin Hunter said Monday an anthropologist will try to determine the cause of death.

Thirlwall was charged in February with second-degree burglary for breaking into a Jefferson City home. A Cole County judge issued an arrest warrant for him in late June, after he failed to appear for a hearing on the charge.
