COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - Some information is coming out after investigators identified a skull found earlier this year to be that of Selvain McQueen II.
A lot of unanswered questions remain, but the DNA from McQueen's mother helped investigators identify the remains.
Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant says the case is an on-going death investigation.
Lowndes County investigators have been scouring the area where the skull and another bone were found earlier this spring.

Merchant did not want to reveal the second bone's nature. However, it could be McQueen's as well.
But water in the area is making the search difficult.
McQueen was the son of former Columbus police chief Selvain McQueen. The son was reported missing in May 2016 after he had not been seen for approximately 45 days.
"At this point to hopefully determine the cause of death or manner of death, we're going to have to have more remains recovered," Merchant said. "Hopefully, we'll be able to recover all or at least most of the remains."
