Default Homo Mouseketeer Dennis Day Found Dead in His Home Nearly 1 Year After Mysterious Disappearance

Nearly one year since Dennis Day mysteriously disappeared from his Oregon community, the former Disney Mouseketeer’s body has been identified.

On Thursday, the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that the body they had found in the Phoenix home that Day, 76, and his husband Ernie Caswell shared was the child star’s, Captain Timothy Fox of the Oregon State Police tells PEOPLE.

Oregon State Police announced the news today, as it took some time for them to identify the remains — first discovered on April 4 — because of their poor condition, which enabled them from using dental records or DNA, according to Capt. Fox.

At this time, it is unclear where Day’s remains were found inside the residence and if they had been there since he first went missing on July 15 — though Capt. Fox says the couple’s home was initially searched when Day disappeared last summer.

Caswell, meanwhile, who suffers from “age-related memory loss”, has been living at a care facility, Capt. Fox tells PEOPLE.

The former Mouseketeer’s death is still currently under investigation by the Oregon State Police.
