Mr. Tyler, whose body was found Tuesday night, was last seen on Nov. 19 and was reported missing Nov. 22. He was positively identified using X-rays that were found at Aiken Regional Medical Centers. A comparison of chest and skull X-rays and those from autopsy performed in Newberry were proof positive, Coroner Tim Carlton said.

As a result, DNA testing will not be completed, he said. Mr. Tyler died of a gunshot wound, Mr. Carlton said Wednesday. The Aiken County Sheriff's Office's criminal investigation continues.
