(KLFY) The body of a woman found in Vermilion Parish on Aug. 27, 2019, has been identified as Tyler Domingue, who was last seen on May, 2014.

The St. Landry Parish woman’s body was recovered from Coulee Kinney after detectives and the District Attorney’s Office developed information into her last known location.

A forensic examination of the remains and review of other possible evidence by Louisiana Forensics, the Acadiana Crime Lab and the LSU F.A.C.E.S. Lab will be necessary to confirm the preliminary identification, the 15th Judicial District Attorney’s Office said.

Authorities found Domingue’s car in Bayou Tigre near Delcambre in June 2016.
