Minnesota Man Killed in Korean War is Coming Home
WILLMAR, Minn. (AP) — The remains of a Minnesota soldier was reported missing in action in North Korea 68 years ago have been identified.
The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency says Army Master Sgt. Carl H. Lindquist of Willmar was identified by research that included DNA, dental records and chest X-rays.
He was reported missing on Nov. 29, 1950, after a battle. He was 32 years old.
The West Central Tribune reports Lindquist's remains were among those recovered in 1954. The technology of the time could not connect any of the remains with Lindquist.
His remains were buried along with other unidentified remains in Hawaii.
The POW/MIA Accounting Agency disinterred Lindquist's remains in 2013 and sent them for identification.
