HORNERSVILLE, MO (KAIT) – Authorities have identified the remains that were found during the investigation of a house fire in Dunklin County.

According to Dunklin County Sheriff Bob Holder, the victim is 58-year-old Alan Clinton Rose of Paragould.

The Dunklin County coroner made the positive identification using a surgical implant serial number found in the fire debris and compared it to Rose's medical records.

Officers were called to 2745 County Road 645 in Hornersville in reference to a fire that might have happened on the morning of Nov. 13 or the day before.

When deputies arrived they discovered the home and a vehicle had been destroyed.

Holder says Rose went to the home to light the pilot light, but had not been heard from since leaving his Paragould home.

Several fire officials were called to investigate the destroyed home.

Holder said bone fragments were found "around the area of the heating stove".

No foul play is suspected in the case, according to Holder.
