Body found is that of missing St. Louis area teen

WOODSON TERRACE, Mo. (AP) — St. Louis area police say a body found over the weekend is that of a missing St. Louis County teenager.

Police in Woodson Terrace said the body found Saturday in a wooded area was that of 19-year-old James Robert Willman of Woodson Terrace. He had been missing since November. His body was found about two miles from where his car was discovered at a rest stop off Interstate 270.

The car had been located five days after Willman was reported missing Nov. 27.

Authorities said Willman appeared to have been murdered, but they did not say how he had died.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch said the identification was made through dental records.
