JEFFERSON, Wis. — Jefferson County authorities say the human remains found in a shed after a fire in the Town of Ixonia last month came from two people.
Sheriff Paul Milbrath says one set of remains has been identified as 61-year-old Brion Downie, who lived in a home on the property. The second set of remains has still not been identified. Additional DNA tests are being conducted.
The fire struck April 24. Firefighters arrived to find a shed and the home on fire.
The town of Ixonia is about 40 miles west of Milwaukee.
