Detective Trevan Woolbright of the Coconino County sheriff's office said the remains have been identified as those of 19-year-old Roger Keeling Jr., who disappeared in April, 1987. Identification was made through a check of dental records, with assistance from the California Department of Justice, Woolbright said.

Instead, Goodwin was surprised by agents from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, who burst in and arrested him Wednesday.
