Skeletal remains found in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness last year have finally been identified as a camper who went missing in October 2018.
The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office said that remains found in April 2019 near a campsite off the Sioux Hustler Trail were positively identified on Thursday as being those of Jordan Grider.
Grider, 29, of Moriarty, New Mexico, was last known to be staying at the campsite on Oct. 22, 2018.
U.S. Border Patrol agents conducted a welfare check on Apr. 5, 2019, and found "large amounts of blood inside the campsite."
St. Louis County investigators arrived and gathered evidence, but didn't see any signs of Grider due to deep snow.
They found the remains 20 days later, and they have only just been identified.
"The exact cause of death remains unknown, although foul play is not suspected," the sheriff's office said.
