MEDARYVILLE, Ind. (WLFI) — An autopsy has been completed on a body found in a Pulaski County home last week. Investigators said they need DNA results to get a formal identity.

The coroner's office said investigators are working on what they call a "presumed identity," but it won't be made official until they have DNA results.

The presumed victim's family is aware and getting support from the coroner's office.

As we previously reported, the body was found last Monday in the aftermath of a house fire north of Medaryville. The source of that fire is also still under investigation.

We will continue to follow this story.
