LAWRENCE, Mich. (AP) - Remains found near Interstate 94 in southwestern Michigan have been identified as a Lansing-area man who disappeared 13 months ago.

Jerome Ezell was supposed to pick up his girlfriend in November 2017 but never appeared with her car. Human remains were discovered last week more than 100 miles away in Van Buren County. State police said Monday that Ezell’s identity was confirmed.

TV station WLNS says investigators are treating it as a homicide, although a cause of death isn’t known yet. Ezell was 28 years old.

His girlfriend, Jasmine Hill, says she found her car a year ago in a wooded area in the Lansing area. Their 5-month-old baby was strapped in a car seat, but Ezell wasn’t around.
