Officials: Bones in Georgia are remains of Kristi Cornwell

Tests conducted on bones found in Georgia have revealed they are the remains of Kristi Cornwell, who went missing nearly a year and a half ago, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Monday.

The positive identification was made through dental records, the bureau said in a statement.

Cornwell, 38, was last seen in northern Georgia in August 2009, Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman John Bankhead said Sunday.

    I'm sorry Miss Cornwell is dead, but am I supposed to know who she is? Why weren't any more details divulged?

    after hearing the gut wrenching interview with her family and close friends amd being from blairsville, it was wonderful to hear that she was a christian. Shes been with Jesus all this time. I know that in some way, finding her remains brings some resolve for her family. They wanted to bring Kristi home, unfortunately she's passed but is no longer suffering. May Jesus bring the peace to them as her loved ones that I'm confident shes experiencing in Heaven. My prayers will be for them.

      Yes thank God that although she was probably brutally murdered we can be happy that she was at least Christian. Phew! That was a close one! It certainly changes everything, hey Alicea?

      Stupid religion.
