GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina coroner says the resident of a Goose Creek home was the victim whose body was burned beyond recognition in the back yard.

Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury said Sunday that DNA testing confirmed the body was 68-year-old Michael Mullikin. His remains were found in a burn barrel on Feb. 27.

Police originally responded to Mullikin’s home after someone reported he was missing. Officers later found the barrel and the remains in the backyard of the house.
