Langlade County officials now have a positive identification of the human remains found outside of Antigo last month.
On the afternoon of August 22, skeletal remains were found near a trail in a wooded area west of Antigo. The Sheriff’s Office says it was 77 year old Leonard Allen Peth.
Officials used dental records to identify the city of Antigo resident.
The Langlade County Coroner’s Office ruled the cause of death as undetermined, and foul play is not suspected.
The Langlade County Sheriff’s Office says Peth was last seen in the Antigo area in February of this year.
