    Detectives and crime scene teams were seen going in and out of the Valley Hill Drive house Monday night, removing several bags of items.

    Police are not saying if the body found inside is that of Ramos, who has not been in contact with any friends or family members since Jan. 7.

    Police did however make an arrest Monday.

    Thirty-two-year-old Xavier Broughton, who lives in the house, has been charged with disinternment of a human body and misleading a police investigation.

    It's not immediately clear if Broughton will face additional charges, or when officials will positively identify the body found inside Broughton's home.

    The medical examiner will determine the cause of the unidentified male's death.
