Email

Hancock -- Authorities have tentatively identified a body discovered by hunters Saturday in Minnesota's west central Stevens County as Jack Leroy Eisel.

He was last seen in 2004 before he walked away from a Hancock group home.

Stevens County Sheriff Randy Willis said the body was tentatively confirmed as Eisel's based on identification found on the body and from clothing he was wearing when reported missing.

"It's 99.9 percent," Willis said of the identification.
