The Johnston County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday that a body found in a barn fire last weekend is that of 32-year-old Heather Beasley Parker.

The identification was made by the medical examiner's office. No other new information was released in what detectives said was an ongoing investigation.

Parker's body was pulled from the rubble of the barn at 4642 US Hwy 301 South Saturday March 9.

Investigators also found chemicals and drug paraphernalia that they said led them to suspect the barn was being used to manufacture methamphetamine.
