MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) — Remains found in rural northeast Kentucky have been identified as those of a Michigan man reported missing a decade ago.

Rowan County Coroner John Northcutt told WKYT-TV in Lexington (http://bit.ly/1v0UdZn ) that a skull and other bones found earlier this month in the Daniel Boone National Forest are those of Thomas Ray James of Grosse Pointe, Michigan.

James was 50-years-old when he was reported missing in August 2004.

Police say James’ abandon car was found at a rest area not long after he was reported missing. The remains were found nearby.

Northcutt says the cause of death will be difficult to determine.

Franklin, in a statement to the Associated Press on Tuesday, called David Ritz’s unauthorized biography, “Respect: The Life of Aretha Franklin,” a “trashy book.” Ritz has written a number of biographies, ranging from Etta James to Rick James to Ray Charles. He has won the Ralph Gleason Music Book Award four times, and last year he received the ASCAP Timothy White Award for outstanding musical biography for the Buddy Guy book, “When I Left Home.” (Photo by Brad Barket/Invision/AP, File)
