Remains believed to be of Howard Dean's brother headed to Hawaii

Vientiane, Laos-AP -- Laos has handed over to the United States the remains of four people, including one set believed to be those of the brother of U-S presidential candidate Howard Dean.

They're now on their way to Hawaii for positive identification.

The remains thought to be those of Charles Dean and an Australian friend were exhumed earlier this month in central Laos following a tip from a villager.

They disappeared in 1974 while traveling through Southeast Asia as tourists. Both are believed to have been imprisoned and killed by communist insurgents who took control of Laos in 1975.

The remains believed to be of two U-S soldiers killed during the Vietnam War were excavated from other sites in northeastern Laos.


Howard Dean and his family are expected to come to a repatriation ceremony Hickam Air Force Base on Wednesday. Also slated to attend are the U-S Ambassador to Laos and the Laotian Vice Minister of Foreign.
