Crossville police have identified the remains found by a Boy Scout troop.
The troop from Morristown found the body in October while hiking at Cumberland Mountain State Park.
Police say the remains belong to "Dalburn Franklin" of Crestview, Florida. Family members told police that Franklin left Florida 7 years ago for Tennessee and no one had heard from him for several years.
Police confirmed the remains were Franklin's by comparing his son's D-N-A.
