The Queen Anne's County sheriff's office said yesterday it will take at least a week to positively identify a body pulled Saturday from the Chesapeake Bay and believed to be that of the man suspected of fatally stabbing a Kent Island elementary school teacher.
Sgt. Gary Hoffman said identification through fingerprints and dental records and results of an autopsy performed yesterday will probably take at least a week.
"In all fairness, there was not a positive identification," Hoffman said.
The sheriff's office has tentatively identified the body as that of Jafar Komeylian, 50, of Stevensville, who is suspected of fatally stabbing Diane Marie Weaver, 45, a fifth-grade teacher at Bayside Elementary on Kent Island, on Wednesday and leaping from the Bay Bridge a short time later.
