(KMOV) – Police have identified the person whose badly-decomposed remains were found in north St. Louis on Monday.

Authorities say a person was walking their dog in the 3000 block of Wharf around 10:15 a.m. when they saw the body near railroad tracks and called police.

The remains were later identified as 22-year-old Joseph Hartsoe, who had been reported missing from Collinsville, Ill. on Dec. 1

The medical examiner has ruled the death a homicide, though the cause is still undermined.

The investigation is ongoing.
