Body of Matthew Yeomans identified – NBC Boston

Human bones, including a skull, found this month in a creek in Easton, Massachusetts, have been identified as belonging to a man last seen in September 2021, authorities said Tuesday.

The teeth helped identify the bones as belonging to Matthew Yeomans, an Easton man whose grandfather reported him missing on Sept. 21, 2021, according to the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office.

The bones were discovered May 1 in a creek near Yeomans’ home in Easton, authorities said. Investigators have yet to identify the cause or manner of Yeoman’s death.



Investigators said they found additional bones Thursday after launching a search when residents reported the discovery a day earlier.

However, prosecutors said there was not believed to be a threat to the public amid the ongoing investigation.
