State police say remains belong to Philip Jackman
Vermont State Police confirmed the identity of the remains Wednesday.
Investigators said they belong to Philip Jackman. The remains were found by a hunter off Beard Road in the Town of Orange on Oct. 2, 2015.
Jackman, 21, was reported missing in the fall of 2004 and was wanted on a state warrant for sex offenses.
Police found Jackman’s vehicle abandoned on Beard Road and said he was suicidal and evading capture. Jackman was never found, and the U.S. marshals took the case from state police.
The search for Jackman lasted for 11 years.
Investigators said they do not suspect foul play in Jackman’s death. His cause of death was not released.
The discovery of Jackman's remains effectively closes his case as a fugitive. ..Source.. by Brad Evans
