When officers arrived on scene, Williams said Foster’s body was burned beyond recognition.

But, the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences was able to confirm Foster’s identity by using his dental records.

“We were able to obtain his dental records and identify him today,” Williams said.

Williams said Foster, who lived on County Road 4421, had just left his residence when the incident occurred.

The case remains under investigation by the Alabama State Troopers, the Brundidge Police Department, the Pike County Sheriff’s Department and the Pike County Coroner.
