DILLINER, Pa. (AP) – A coroner says he and a team of anthropology students have recovered what they believe to be more fragmented remains of a worker who was killed when a southwestern Pennsylvania natural gas well exploded last month.

Greene County Coroner Greg Rohanna tells the Observer-Reporter the remains are believed to be those of 27-year-old Ian Robert McKee, of Morgantown, W.Va. Rohanna has been assisted by Dr. Dennis Dirkmaat and students from Mercyhurst University.

Other remains found previously at the Chevron well pad in Dunkard Township were also believed to be McKee’s.

McKee was a contract technician working on the well when it exploded into fire Feb. 11. A second well head nearby caught fire three days later due to flames from the first blast.
