    I wonder if this could be Mo Zhang?

    A lot of people missing from Virginia but not too many missing from Yorktown.

    Police: Skeletal remains in Yorktown were there for years

    YORKTOWN, Va. (WVEC) -- Police are currently classifying skeletal human remains that were found in a wooded area of Yorktown as a "suspicious death," and say that person's body had been there for years.
    Captain Troy Lyons said the skeletal remains appear to be that of an 18 to 25-year-old man. Clothing items were recovered, as well as an identification card that belonged to a white male.

    Police are not releasing the name until the medical examiner can positively ID the body, and next-of-kin are notified. Positive identification "may take some time."
    Captain Lyons said the individual is not believed to be connected to any known missing persons case.

    No tissue was found on the remains, which were covered by leaves and vegetation.

    Forensic anthropologists to examine remains found in Yorktown

    Human skeletal remains found in the woods in York County last month are now under examination by forensic anthropologists and medical examiner’s office staff, police say.

    The human remains found May 19 off Goosley Road have been transported to the Central Laboratory Medical Examiner’s Office in Richmond for examination and testing, according to a York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office Facebook post.

    Police have also taken DNA samples from family members of the owner of an identification card that was found with the remains, the post said.
    Police also estimate the DNA testing with family of the identification card owner will take six to eight weeks.

    “No further information regarding the name of the owner of the identification card will be released until the DNA analysis has been completed and an official report has been received,” the post read.

    They are saying male, so I am thinking no on Alexis Murphy.

    Thanks.

    There was some speculation back in May that this might somehow be related to the Colonial Parkway Murders. Law enforcement had told Parkway families privately that ID had been found with his body, and now his remains have been positively identified. RIP.
