James "JJ" Wilson never showed up to his job at McDonald's on November 27. Police found his abandoned car days later.
The Willman family of Woodson Terrace gained a slight sense of closure this weekend when authorities ID'd the body found Saturday in the woods off Columbia Bottoms Road in north St. Louis County as that of 19-year-old James "JJ" Willman.

The teen had been missing since November 27 when his father last saw him around 1:30 a.m. At the time, Willman was reportedly anxious following a number of strange calls and texts to his cell phone. Willman's car was discovered several days later in north St. Louis with its license plates removed.

Police identified Willman through dental records and believe he was murdered. No word yet on a suspect or a motive, but you'd think that authorities might have some clue based on those strange phone calls prior to his disappearance.

Here's hoping police can quickly solve the riddle and give Willman's family the final closure they deserve.
