Name released in fire death near Adrian

From Bates County Coroner, Greg Mullinax

The deceased individual found in the structure fire early in the morning of March 3, 2021 west of Adrian, Missouri is positively identified as Tonia R. Hart, 57 of Adrian. Identification procedures were completed earlier in the week, but time was given for notification of family members, and I appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Cause of death information is at this time incomplete, and I will provide those updates as they are finalized.

My thoughts and prayers remain with the family and friends.
