NICHOLLS, GA (WALB) -

Investigators say the identity of the body found buried at a personal care home has been confirmed by crime lab experts.

Dental records received from the Veterans Hospital in Boston, MA confirmed the identity of Alexander Hunter, who was a resident at Rosewood Manor, an assisted living facility.

Detectives said they still did not have a cause of death to report, and that it could be several more months before medical examiners provide any kind of autopsy report.

Hunter's body was found August 8, buried in a shed on the property of Rosewood Manor.

Diana Jacobs, a former Licensed Practical Nurse at the facility was charged with concealing a body. Her husband James Jacobs was charged with financial fraud in connection to the case.

Investigators said the facility was no longer being operated as an assisted living home.

The Coffee County Sheriff's Office said they have not ruled out more charges in the case.
