AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The state medical examiner’s office has identified a man whose remains were discovered more than a decade ago in northern Maine.

Officials said Monday that DNA tests confirmed the remains were those of Christopher Roof, of Concord, Massachusetts.

But it’s still a mystery about why he was in Maine, and how he died.

The cause of death remains “undetermined.”

Roof was last seen in August 2010 and the remains were found by a hunter on Nov. 4, 2010, in Stacyville.

A tip from a former acquaintance enabled investigators to connect with Roof’s next of kin, which led to the positive identification.
