"The family just wants closure," a Gambling911 source said.

The US State Department confirmed the reports to ESPN Monday evening.  Creighton was a resident of Bridgeport, West Virginia before moving to Costa Rica in 1998 upon which time he embarked on taking over ownership of 5Dimes from a consortium of online casino and sportsbooks run by one-time Web gambling magnate Al Ross.

"We can confirm Costa Rican authorities identified the remains of a U.S. citizen in Costa Rica," a spokesperson for the U.S. State Department said in a statement Monday afternoon in response to ESPN's request for comment about Creighton's death. "We offer our sincerest condolences to the family on their loss. We are closely monitoring local authorities' investigation into the cause of death. We stand ready to provide all appropriate consular assistance. Out of respect to the family during this difficult time, we have no further comment."

The Gambling911.com source believes the request for a DNA test will be honored.

Generally, DNA testing is quite reliable on a deceased person.  From human cells, results can often be determined in just a matter of hours. 

Creighton was abducted after leaving the 5Dimes office on Sept. 24, 2018. Early the following morning, Creighton's relatives received a $5 million ransom demand, according to OIJ. Ultimately, a $1 million ransom was paid in bitcoin, OIJ said.

Nearly a dozen individuals were arrested earlier this year in connection with the case.
