The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Friday the positive identification was obtained through DNA testing with Keyes' parents. The remains were found last Friday in Hawkinsville, Ga., in an area where a building burned around the time the 19-year-old was last seen, authorities say.

The site where the remains were found is near the home of 17-year-old Robert Kane Rollison, who faces a murder charge in Keyes' death. The teen is being held in the Pulaski County jail; a bond hearing had not been set.

The suspect was "dual-enrolled" at his high school and Middle Georgia State, where Keyes was a freshman.
