Cyril Wecht, forensic pathologist, told Fox News that investigators may have concluded Sunday that the remains were likely to be Petito’s first because of the location where they were discovered — where Petito’s van was spotted by travelers in late August — and because authorities may have discovered personal items belonging to the young woman.
“I think … that identification was made by something found there of a personal nature,” Wecht said, giving examples such as a purse, a ring and so on. “I do believe there was something found there that permitted them to make this determination before they could get into anatomical determination.”

The condition of the remains at the time they were found is unknown, but Wecht said varying weather conditions like those in Moose in September, when temperatures can reach 70 degrees Fahrenheit during the daytime and 40 degrees or cooler by the evening in September, which may hasten the decomposition process.
A medical examiner will also be looking for any signs of trauma to the body, Wecht said.

Wecht said that while there are some cases in which “a man’s body doesn’t have definitive male features and likewise with a woman,” officials can differentiate between male and female remains “90% of the time,” usually based on pelvic bone structure.
