The body, buried in Hancock County, known as Jane Doe, was ordered exhumed by a judge in October to perform a D.N.A. test on the remains. A Louisiana family believes those remains belong to a loved one of theirs, Nelda Hardwick. Today, the Hancock County Coroner, Jim Faulk, was pinpointing the exact location of the remains. Faulk says, "What we're doing right now is using ground penetrating radar, just to make sure that we have an accurate location and that we will be digging in the right place." Faulk believes that the exhumation will take place before Christmas.
