Body found in Clearwater storage unit identified

Clearwater, Florida -- Clearwater Police say DNA testing has confirmed the body found in a storage unit belongs to a woman who died in 1995.

A Texas lab that specializes in mitochondrial DNA testing identified that the remains were of Ann Bunch.

Back in January, the manager of U-Stor Storage told Rebecca Ann Fancher -- the woman who rented the unit -- that she was behind on payments and if she didn't pay, the items inside it would be auctioned off. 

Manager Kevin McKeon says Fancher responded by telling him her dead grandmother was being kept inside the storage unit.

Police recovered the skeletal remains inside a blue homemade coffin. Fancher reportedly said her mother told her about the remains as she was on her deathbed last year.

Police recovered Bunch's death certificate, who died in 1995.

Medical examiners told police the body had been properly processed for burial, but it was unclear why the casket was in the storage unit.

With the Texas lab positively identifying Bunch, police say the case is now closed. No charges were filed.
