Identification of Partial Skeletal Remains
updated: Feb 06, 2013, 5:37 PM

Source: San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office

Type of Incident: Identification of Partial Skeletal Remains

Date and Time of Incident: 7-15-12

Place of Occurrence: South side of Tank Farm Road, between South Higuera St. & Highway 227, San Luis Obispo

Victim Information: William Grant Grable II, 51

Suspect Information: N/A

Details of News Release: On 7-15-12, San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office/Coroner's detectives responded to a report of a discovery of partial skeletal remains. The remains were found in an area on the South side of Tank Farm road between Higuera Street and Highway 227. The person leasing the land discovered the badly decomposed remains in the water of the creek that flows through the property. Because there was no identification, investigators submitted this case to the Department of Justice for DNA profiling and also to a national missing person database. In December, the DNA profile of the remains was identified. And then on 2-4-13, based on that profile, a DNA match was received from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. The body has been identified as William Grant Grable II, 51, a transient from Texas. Grable appears to have died of natural causes although because of the advanced state of decomposition, the cause and manner of death remains undetermined. Special recognition goes to the Coroner's detectives for their diligence and hard work in solving this case.
