LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – According to officials, a man from Las Vegas has been identified as the person whose remains were discovered in the Atlantic Ocean more than two decades ago.
The state medical examiner’s office said on Wednesday that the remains that were found 27 miles (43 kilometers) off the coast on July 24, 2000, belonged to 84-year-old Philip Kahn, who was reported missing that same year.
Why Kahn ended up in New England waters near Grand Manan Island in Canada is a mystery. After taking a flight to New York City, he vanished.
Officials revisited the case in 2019 and again last year through the FBI’s Deceased Persons Identification Services Division after failing in earlier attempts to identify the partially skeletonized remains using DNA and fingerprints.
The dental records and fingerprints of Kahn, who had been reported missing in Las Vegas in 2000, were identified by the FBI. Officials stated that members of his family have been informed.
