A body found in a park in Charles County, Maryland, last week is that of a woman who went missing from Fairfax County, Virginia, earlier this month, police said Monday.
Hannah Choi, 35, disappeared from her home in the Kingstowne area on March 5, police previously said.
A community member found a body in a wooded area of Piscataway Park, police said Friday, saying they tentatively believed it was Choi’s body. The remains are Choi’s, police confirmed at a news conference Monday afternoon.
Choi’s ex-boyfriend Joel Mosso Merino, 27, remains wanted for second-degree murder and disposal of a body.
A $40,000 reward is available for information leading to an arrest as her family pleads for answers.
