YAKIMA COUNTY, WA -  The Yakima County Sheriff's Office has confirmed a body found by a hiker in a ravine back in September is indeed that of Antonio Hernandez-Ledezma of Boardman, Oregon.

Right now, 19-year-old Yoset Dominguez-Serrano is in jail for his murder.

Police began investigating the murder when they found Hernandez-Ledezma's green 1999 Ford Mustang near Zillah with a shattered passenger window and extensive amounts of blood inside the car on February 3, 2015.

On September 10th, 2015 a hiker found the body in a ravine off the 3000 block of Cheyne Road.

The discovery of the remains confirms that he died by homicidal violence as the investigation suggested from very early on, according to the Yakima County Sheriff's Office.
