SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Police in coastal Georgia say forensic testing has identified remains found in 2018 as the body of a Louisiana man who had been missing since 2017. Chatham County Police announced Thursday that the remains are those of 34-year-old Leroy Peter Hargrave Jr. No cause of death has been determined. Relatives in Houma, Louisiana, reported Hargrave missing in May of 2017. They say he had moved to Savannah for drug treatment and had been living in a homeless shelter and then a house. They reported him missing after their phone calls to Hargrave went unanswered. His body was found in 2018 near Old Fort Jackson. Chatham County police say they’re still investigating how Hargrave died and are asking for tips.
