Authorities have officially identified a body that a man is accused of hiding under cardboard boxes and paper bags at his Massachusetts home.
MassLive.com reports that officials positively identified the remains Thursday as 27-year-old Justin Ramos.
Ramos was last seen Jan. 7 at the Worcester home of 32-year-old Xavier Broughton. Broughton has pleaded not guilty to charges of disinterment of a human body and misleading a police investigation.
