Investigators working to identify body found in Kiln

KILN, MS (WLOX) -

Hancock County Coroner Jim Faulk confirms a body was found in a wooded area in Kiln over the weekend. Investigators are now working to identify the remains and determine a cause of death.

Faulk said a DNA test will be used to determine if the body is that of a man reported missing earlier this month. Geron Diette, 39, was reported missing Oct. 4.

Faulk said Diette’s mother will give a DNA sample to be tested to see if there’s a match.

Faulk said the body was found Sunday in a wooded area near the Silver Creek subdivision.
