Funeral arrangements were set for a man pulled from the Scioto River 37 years ago.
The body of Arthur Raymond Flowers was discovered in the river in 1975 with his ankles bound.
The body was buried but recently exhumed so investigators could create a clay likeness of the man.
A woman thought the figure looked familiar. Her uncle vanished in the 1970’s and she thought the sculpture might be him.
The woman sent a picture of her uncle to authorities after she read the story on 10TV.com
DNA testing was completed, which positively identified the body as Flowers, who was a patient at the Chillicothe VA Hospital when he disappeared.
The Chillicothe Gazette reported that Flowers would be given a military burial Wednesday at Hueston Cemetery in Harden County.
Flowers was survived by a sister, brother, a sister-in-law, a brother-in-law and 18 nieces and nephews, the newspaper reported.
