Remains Found Of Missing Fox Movie Executive
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say the remains of a movie executive who disappeared more than two years ago have been found.
The Los Angeles County coroner’s office confirmed early Thursday that the remains of Gavin Smith have been positively identified.
But Lt. Larry Dietz declined say where or when they were located or provide any other information, saying the sheriff’s department had requested a security hold.
Smith, who worked in 20th Century Fox’s movie distribution department, was last seen on May 1, 2012.
His disappearance had been investigated as a murder.
Authorities said earlier they had found his car at a storage facility, and its condition along with witness statements led them to believe Smith was killed, though at that point his remains had not been found.
News reports earlier this year said that he had officially been declared dead.
