U.S. authorities in Iraq have recovered remains that have been identified as two American contractors in Iraq.


The victims have been identified as:


Ronald Withrow of Roaring Springs, Texas, who worked for JPI Worldwide when he was kidnapped on January 5, 2007, and


John Roy Young of Kansas City, Missouri, who worked for Crescent Security Group when he was kidnapped on November 16, 2006.


The FBI’s Office of Victim Assistance has been in contact with the victims’ families since the men were kidnapped, and they have already been notified of the recovery.


The men and women of the FBI wish to express our deepest sympathy to the victims’ families. We understand that this is a very difficult time for all the families involved, and the FBI will continue to provide any assistance it can.


This is an open investigation, and the FBI, working with its partners in the Hostage Working Group in Iraq, will continue to aggressively investigate every available lead in order to identify, apprehend, and bring to justice those responsible for this heinous criminal act.
