Casey Co. Coroner: Search finds more human remains, clothing
Part of mystery surrounding the September 30/October 1, 2015 disappearance of 24 year old Dunnville, KY, woman may be close at hand

By Ed Waggener, ColumbiaMagazine.com (c)
(1:01pmCT) - Mon 21 Nov 2016) - Casey County Coroner Curt Demrow said today in a telephone interview that the search conducted Sunday for more human remains resulted in recovery of additional skeletal remains and some items of women's clothing.
Although evidence does point to the probability that the recovery is the remains of Whitney Danielle Copley, missing since September 30/October 1, 2015 from the Dunnville area near where the remains were recovered, a final identification awaits a report from the State Medical Examiner's office.
Demrow said that dental records will be checked for a match first. "We do have a complete set of dental records for Whitney Copley," he said. "And that will be the starting point in the identification."
He said that a thorough search of a densely wooded area, about one half mile up the hill behind Dog Walk Market in Dunnville, KY, included Casey County Sheriff's Office units, Kentucky State Police, and included an on-site representative from the State Examiner's office.
All the recovered remains are now in the Kentucky State Medical Examiner's office, he said.
Results of the examination could be forthcoming within hours, and likely in no more than a few days.
The newest evidence does point toward the possible solving of part of the mystery around the disappearance of Whitney Danielle Copley the night of Wednesday, September 30, 2015, or the early hours of Thursday morning, October 1, 2015. (See: State Police continuing search for missing Dunnville woman), but there's no certainty just yet.
