Remains found nearly 50 years ago in Arizona identified as a Vietnam veteran from Minnesota

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Human remains found nearly 50 years ago in the Flagstaff area have been identified as a Vietnam veteran originally from Minnesota, authorities said Wednesday.

Coconino County Sheriff's officials said the remains were those of Gerald Francis Long but the cause of death cannot be determined.

Long's skeletal remains were discovered in April 1975 about 40 miles (60 kilometers) east of Flagstaff by farmers chasing a runaway pig. Despite numerous leads over the years, none resulted in a positive identification.
