Man missing since 1966 -
Skeleton is identified
FARMINGTON - A skeleton found April 23 six miles south of Farmington in Clark County, Mo., has been identified as that of Earl Muntz, 76, of rural Farmington, who disappeared Aug. 12, 1966.
Van Buren County Sheriff Orville Lee said the remains were identified by relatives through personal effects at the scene. Although there was no evidence of foul play, the investigation remains open.
Sheriff Lee said two Clark County men found the skeleton in a wooded area owned by Crandon Paper Mills of Ft. Madison.
The Clark County medical examiner and sheriff were assisted in the investigation by an anthropologist from the University of Missouri in Columbia, in determining the skeleton was that of an older human male.
Muntz was born Oct. 5, 1890 in Van Buren County to Jacob and Josephine Simmons Mantz(err). His wife, the former Olive Walls preceded him in death in 1958.
He is survived by a son, Melvin Muntz of Ft. Madison and three daughters: Orvilla Muntz of Keosauqua, Maxine Kerr of Clarendon Hills, Ill., and Pauline Varner of Memphis, Mo.
