Earthly body located; Theresa DeKeyzer 22 - Warren, Michigan
Police Chief Jere Green said the body is of Theresa DeKeyzer and was identified through tattoos, earrings and the clothing she was wearing in a photo that was taken when she was the victim of domestic violence June 15.
Mary Mazur, a spokeswoman for the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office, confirmed this afternoon that the body is that of a decomposed female and that an autopsy is under way. She said that this weekend a forensic dentist would compare the teeth to dental records in an effort to formally identify the remains.
A post on the Facebook page of DeKeyzer's sister, Leah, stated the family received confirmation that DeKeyzer had been found.
"We have suffered a terrible loss and we appreciate all of the love, prayers, and support during this time," according to the post, which asked the news media to respect the family's privacy and let them "grieve in peace."
