The human remains found in a plastic bag in Florida last week have been identified as those of a teenager who went missing almost exactly one year ago.
The death is now being investigated as a murder, according to Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
Find - Worker - Land
The grisly find was made by a worker as he cleared land.
“The human remains located in the 6700 block of Utsey Drive on Thursday, July 11, 2019, have been identified as Corbin Odell Johnson, black male,” said the sheriff’s office in a statement.

Johnson was reported missing to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office on July 13, 2018. He was 18 at the time.
Shannon Whitman told First Coast News her husband was across the street from their house doing some work when he found the remains.
Something - Shot - Skull - Tractor - Park
“He went over something and shot a skull out, immediately put the tractor in park, was like ‘oh my gosh’ and then called the cops,” she said.
Her husband, Joseph Cummings, was clearing land with a brush hog at the time.
Plastic - Bag - Bit - Plastic - Bag
“I hit a plastic bag, so I backed up a little bit to get the plastic bag from my mower and glanced over and happened to notice there was a skull laying there,” Cummings told News4Jax. “I just shut everything down. Shut my tractor down. Walked away from it.”
