(MEDORA) - A Kentucky prosecutor says what is believed to be flesh found at Rumpke landfill in Medora is being tested against a DNA sample from a missing Sullivan University student.
Three pieces of flesh were found after 18-year-old Andrew Compton disappeared in Louisville .
A DNA profile of Compton was finished in December and test are being done.
Compton has not been seen since October 28, 2010.
Gregory O'Bryan of Louisville had pleaded not guilty to the murder and sodomy of Compton. He could face the death penalty if convicted.
The defense said Friday was the first they have heard of the flesh being found.
An initial investigation by Louisville Metro police resulted in a 9 day search of the landfill in Nov. 2010. At that time police did not release any information, if evidence was found at the landfill.
