Pensyl was last seen on May 17, 2012, at a bus stop near the Lowes Home Improvement on Carolina Beach Road. He was 20-years-old at the time.

A construction worker found the remains in woods located behind Walmart on Nov. 21.

Brewer said that due to the deterioration of the body, a cause of death couldn’t be determined. Foul play is not suspected.
