KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) - Police in Kingsport say skeletal remains found recently were those of a Virginia man who appears to have been shot.
The Kingsport Times-News ( http://bit.ly/Hdem6z) quoted a police news release in reporting dental records were used to identify the remains as those of 36-year-old Antonio J. Wyatt. Detective David Cole said Wyatt had been working in the Kingsport area, but was from the Norfolk and Virginia Beach area. He was reported missing last year.
