MILWAUKEE -- The remains of the woman found in Racine County on Wednesday have been identified as Audrey Scott, a Milwaukee woman who had been missing since July 4.

Police say the incident is being investigated as a homicide, and there are several persons of interest in custody.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner conducted the autopsy.

Scott's mother, Carrie Scott-Haney, told TODAY'S TMJ4 in July that her daughter was out with her boyfriend on Water Street the night she went missing.

"There was a fight that broke out there between him and her, and then with her cousin," said Scott-Haney.

The day before was the last time they heard from her.

"After that everything is a mystery," said Scott-Haney.

Scott-Haney said the couple has a history of domestic violence.

"I begged her to leave him; he's pulled out guns on her before," Scott-Haney said. "She feared for her life."

Police say Scott wasn't reported missing until July 14. A witness told investigators Scott was seen that day near 92nd and Sheridan, but she wasn’t found.

Police say the case is still under investigation.
