ABILENE, Kan. (AP) - The Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office says investigators exhumed the remains of a person believed to be a possible victim of a serial killer.

Sheriff Gareth Hoffman said in a news release the remains were exhumed Wednesday from the Abilene Cemetery in Abilene.

Hoffman says the sheriff’s office was contacted last April by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation of a possible match between the remains found near Upland in 1974 and a person reported missing from Tulsa, Oklahoma, that year.

The Salina Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2dPcfLn ) a KBI investigation in 1974 identified a serial killer, Cecil Henry Floyd, as the suspect in the Dickinson County case.

Investigative reports indicate that Floyd admitted to killing 11 people - four in Florida, one in Kansas, one in Nebraska and five in Indiana.
