Woman's remains identified

Nearly four months after human bones were fond in Southwest Oklahoma City, police have identified the remains as belonging to a college student from Japan.  The woman was attending Oklahoma City Community College when she disappeared almost six years ago. 

She had last been seen August 20, 2001 and was reported missing seven days later by her family in Japan.  The woman's remains were found near Camp Kickapoo in April when a group of boys, hiking with a church group, found a skull.  Police later found additional bones in the area and say a cause of death has yet to be determined.

Homicide detectives are still investigating.
