 The Medical Examiner said Thursday, to get a better idea of the cause of Kelly Dwyer's death,they are sending her body to a forensic anthropologist for further investigation.

The Chief said discovering and identifying Dwyer's body opens up all new avenues with into this death investigation.

He added that now that the medical examiner has identified the body, the next step is to examine it , determine cause and manner of death, and any other evidence they can retrieve from the remains.

Dr. Fred Anapol with UW-Milwaukee's Center for Forensic Science said that can be difficult with a body that's been potentially decomposing outdoors for the last 18 months.

\"The fact that they had to resort to dental records lets you know [the body is] pretty far gone,\" Dr. Anapol added.

According to Flynn, MPD will now work in conjunction with law enforcement in Jefferson County, where Dwyer's body was found.

The Chief wouldn't comment on whether Kris Zocco remains the one and only person of interest in the case.

\"We're going to follow the evidence and see where it takes us,\" the Chief said.
