At the time of the fire, police were unable to locate the owner of the restaurant.  They later discovered a body in the burned out building.

After several months, the medical examiner's office determined the body found in the building was restaurant owner Lorraine Qutermous.

Investigators say they will not comment further out of respect to Qutermous' family.
