The remains possibly belonging to murdered Food Network Star contestant Cristie Codd and her husband Joseph “JT” Codd have been found, CBS News reports. According to the outlet, medical examiner Dr. Sharon Sweede said the remains have not yet been identified, however.
“They haven't found anything that would easily ID them," Sweede told CBS News’ Crimesider. "We're not finished." Sweede was also unable to comment on where the remains were found or even which state they were in.
As previously reported, the season 8 contestant was murdered along with her husband in Leicester, N.C. Codd was five months pregnant at the time of her death.
After the couple went missing on Sunday, March 15, Buncombe County deputies later confirmed that neighbor Robert Jason Owens had been charged with two counts of first degree murder, one count of murder of an unborn child, breaking and entering, and larceny. Owens is said to have broken into the Codds' home and stolen a laptop, jewelry, and a handgun.
Owens had been hired by the couple to do work on their home and authorities believe he killed them on Thursday, and then broke into their home on Sunday, when he stole the items.
Owens is also a suspect with the disappearance of 18-year-old college student Zebb Quinn. He was last spotted with her on Jan. 2, 2000, before she went missing. Although a search was conducted, Owens was never charged in the case.
In regards to the Codd case, he remains currently jailed without bond.
