In a recent discovery, skeletal human remains that were found in Galloway Township, New Jersey, almost three years ago have finally been identified as those of a missing New York man.

The man, Kevin Morris, had been reported missing from Staten Island in October 2011, and his disappearance had left his family searching for answers for over a decade.

Kevin Morris was 32 years old when he was last seen by his mother, as he left his home to visit his girlfriend. Morris never returned, leaving his loved ones in an agonizing state of uncertainty for years. The remains, which were discovered in the 100 block of South Pomona Road on June 7, 2021, have now been confirmed to be those of Kevin Morris.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office has opened an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Kevin Morris' death. Details surrounding this case are still under examination and authorities are urging anyone with information related to the case to come forward.
