Remains Found In Md. Confirmed As Those Of Va. Man

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Authorities say they’ve found the remains in Frederick of a man who disappeared from northern Virginia nearly two years ago.

The skeletal remains, found by a tree-trimming crew in August, have been confirmed as those of Oscar Velasco Montano, 29.

He was last seen in July 2011 at a construction job at Tysons Corner Center in McLean.

Capt. Tim Clarke of the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office tells the Frederick News-Post that Fairfax County police are investigating Montano’s death as a homicide.

He says Montano was identified through DNA testing. Authorities haven’t released the cause of death yet.
