CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston County Coroner's Office has confirmed that a human foot found at the Charleston Marina and remains found at a marsh behind The Citadel belong to a missing North Charleston man.
Authorities say the individual has been identified as 20-year-old Everett Middleton who was reported missing on Dec. 23, 2016.
"Identification was made through DNA testing in which specimens from both the foot and the other remains were compared to an existing DNA profile for the decedent," Coroner Rae Wooten said. "At this time the "Cause" and "Manner" of death remain "Undetermined" pending further investigation."
On May 1, authorities found human remains inside a shoe at the Charleston Marina.
A portion of a human right foot was encased in a black sock inside the shoe, police say.
The incident report states the person who reported it claimed the shoe had been sitting on the dock for approximately six days.
