Remains found near CR identified

EUREKA- The remains of a body discovered last year near the College of the Redwoods have been identified.

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s office says they are those of 37-year old Lucas Dale Blake-Williams of McKinleyville.

He went missing in October of 2015 after being dropped at CR’s Eureka campus.

Almost two years later, a PG&E wildlife biologist came across skeletal remains and clothing while checking out a project site.

DNA from the remains was used to determine his identity.

The cause and of his death are still unknown.
