Johnson's cause of death has yet to be determined. No arrests have been made in the case.

Johnson's mother told WCCO he loved his family and spending time with his kids.

"My heart is truly broken," Lisa Sanchez said. "He may be gone from our sight, but never, ever from our hearts. Please help us find justice for Adam."

The family says he suffered from mental health and addiction issues. They're collecting reward money and working with police to find who's responsible for his death.

Johnson had not been reported as a missing person. Authorities believe his death was recent, due to the level of decomposition of his body parts.

Investigators have not detailed which body parts have been found. More parts could be in the city.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover Johnson's funeral expenses. According to relatives, Johnson left behind two young children.
