The Pentagon says it has uncovered remains in Laos that may be those of Presidential candidate Howard Dean’s younger brother.

Charlie Dean is believed to have been killed by the Communist Pathet Lao nearly 30 years ago while traveling with an Australian friend down the Mekong River.

Howard Dean traveled to Laos last year in an attempt to find out more about what happened to his brother.

Charlie Dean — while a civilian — was considered by the government to have been a prisoner of war.

He is believed to have been held in a prison camp for a few months before being executed.
