Autopsy results have yet to positively identify the person whose remains were discovered encased in concrete and buried in the yard of a Winder residence, but the Pensacola Police Department in Florida has identified a missing man likely related to the incident as a former newspaper reporter for the Pensacola News Journal. Sean Dugas, 30, of Pensacola has not been heard from since Aug. 27, when he talked with a female friend by phone. They planned to go to lunch, but when she arrived at his house to pick him up, Dugas wasn’t home, according to Pensacola police Capt. David Alexander.
Twin, 31-year-old brothers were arrested Monday and are being held in two area jails on pending charges of concealing a death. The body was unearthed from the side yard of a house their father is renting on Sixth Avenue just west of downtown. Christopher Cormier is being held at the Barrow County Detention Center and William Joseph Cormier III at the Jackson County Jail.
Police were unable to immediately identify the body due to its solid encasement, but the victim was believed to be Dugas.
