Forensics tests have determined the identity of skeletal remains found in a wooded area in Kenosha earlier this year.

According to the Kenosha Police Department, the remains were those of Hozia Jackson, a 51-year-old Chicago man who had been reported missing in 2012.

The skeletal remains were found on April 5 in a wooded area to the west of 122nd Avenue, close to I-94.

After the remains were determined to be human, they were sent to a forensic anthropologist who matched the DNA to Jackson.

Jackson's death remains under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Vicente Correa at 262-605-5241, the Kenosha Police Department Detective Bureau at 262-605-5203 or Kenosha Area Crime Stoppers at 262-656-7333.
