Skull found in woods is that of Kelso man
The Longview Daily News reported that the county coroner identified the skull on Friday as 29-year-old Sam Stefonek. The coroner's office and the Washington State Patrol's Missing and Unidentified Person Unit used dental records to identify the skull.
Coroner Tim Davidson said the skull showed no signs of trauma and because only the skull was found, his cause of death remains unknown.
Stefonek disappeared Aug. 8, 2010. Authorities said he argued with his girlfriend and then fled into the woods behind his parents' home. His cellphone was later found nearby.
