Law enforcement officers discovered the remains Sunday in a remote, wooded area approximately a half-mile from his home in the Bigbee/Cason community.
Investigators sent the remains to the state medical examiner's office for further review.
"This is an answered prayer, and we hope that this helps the family in the healing process; however, this does not close our investigation into Mr. Brown's disappearance and death," Monroe County Sheriff Kevin Crook stated.
