Human Remains Identified

Investigators have now identified human remains found in Floyd County.

The Floyd County coroner says the skeletal remains found in the Right Beaver area belong to Patricia Phillips.

The coroner says they identified the body by dental records.

Phillips, who was from Ohio, was 30 years old when she was reported missing in May of 2000.

Her husband, Marcus, was convicted of killing her in 2000 without a body.

Marcus Phillips is originally from Pike County.

Investigators say Phillips, who's in prison, confessed to killing his wife... and when he took police to the area where he said he left the body... he claimed it was no longer there.
