Body Sent to Lab for ID

When Dale Robinson led investigators to a wooded area in the Menominee Indian Reservation early Tuesday morning, the search for Deanna Zuleger Scantlin likely came to an end. Likely, because the body has not been positively identified.

A forensic pathologist in Milwaukee is inspecting the body and investigators hope to have the first question answered within a couple days. After that, investigators hope to learn how Deanna died.

Dale Robinson has been charged with her kidnapping, but when he led investigators to the body he denied killing her, calling her death an accident.

According to Robinson's story, the night she disappeared, Deanna and Robinson were drinking at the Dells of the Eau Claire when she fell off the rocks and hurt her neck and head.

Investigators hope forensics science can tell them whether Robinson is telling the truth.

The DNA test confirming the identity of the body should be done in a couple days.
