Officials in Massachusetts have identified the human remains recovered Thursday after a multi-day search.
The FBI's Boston office said Friday the remains are of Zakhia Charabati.
The 52-year-old Manchester, New Hampshire resident was reported missing by his family on Mar. 14.
The agency said the buried remains were located after a four-month investigation. The FBI said Charabati's family has been notified and is requesting privacy.
The FBI and other agencies searched a Methuen, Massachusetts property for about three days, digging in a large lot using a backhoe.
The FBI said the investigation into those responsible for Charabati's death is ongoing.
