(KMOV.com) -- Police have confirmed that the body found in north St. Louis county Saturday morning belongs to missing Woodson Terrace teen J.J. Willman.

According to Woodson Terrace police chief Bob Dowling, the medical examiner used dental records to positively identify the body.  The medical examiner said Willman, 19, was a victim of a homicide, but did not say how Willman died. 

Willman had been missing since November 27th last year.  Police found Willman's abandoned car at a rest stop off Interstate 270 five days after he was reported missing.  On Saturday, his body was found in a conservation area off Columbia Bottoms Road around 9:15 a.m., just two miles from the rest area.

Police do not have any suspects at this time, but said they have been talking to people of interest.
