LATIMER COUNTY, Oklahoma - The Oklahoma State Medical Examiner was not able to identify a cause of death for a Latimer County family whose skeletal remains were found four years after they disappeared.

Earlier in the month, the ME positively identified the remains of Bobby and Sherilynn Jamison and their 6-year-old daughter, Madyson Stormy Star Jamison.

Deer hunters found the remains on November 16, 2013, less than three miles from where the family disappeared in October of 2009. Authorities said the family disappeared while they were looking at land for a possible purchase.

The ME said he could not determine the a cause or manner of death for the three. He said he could find no evidence of trauma done to the remains at the time of death, but because the remains were just bones, he could not rule that out. The report also said disease could not be ruled out.

The ME did, however, find that the deaths occurred under suspicious circumstances.

The bones showed evidence of post-mortem damage due to animals, according to the report.
