It took nearly three years for investigators to identify Morris.

Prosecutors reached out to the public last year asking for help identifying the remains found in Galloway on June 7, 2021.

They said the remains were found with a metal ring and a silver earring with one stud. An image of the ring was released to the public.

The man was between 5’10” and 5’7″ and there were signs that he had undergone surgery on his right hand, which had a metal plate.
