The Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that the human remains found in Elk, Wash. last week belong to Ramona Childress.

Childress, 27, went missing a year ago. Her boyfriend, Jason Flett, is charged with her murder. Flett allegedly killed Childress in fear that she would report several home invasion robberies he was allegedly involved in.

The medical examiner confirmed that Childress died of homicidal violence, according to a release.

Investigators originally turned up the remains on the rural Elk property on Nov. 14.
