Remains of Missing Family Found in Calif. Desert

DNA tests need to confirm

|

Two of the four sets of remains found this week in a Southern California desert are those of a couple who disappeared in 2010—Joseph McStay and his wife, Summer—San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said Friday, citing dental records.

Authorities believe the other two sets of remains are those of the McStays' sons, Joseph and Gianni, but those identities still need to be confirmed through DNA records, McMahon said. The manner of the deaths was homicide, he said.
