ST. MARTIN PARISH, La. — The St. Martinville Police Department has identified the human remains found on December 22, 2022, by matching DNA.

The remains were identified as 71-year-old Albert Willis, according to St. Martinville Police Chief Ricky Martin.

Willis went missing on June 18, 2021.

According to his family, Willis suffered from dementia.

Porsche Calais was arrested in May of 2022 on a charge of obstruction of justice. Police say the arrest was for intentional deceitfulness and a failure to cooperate in the ongoing investigation and efforts to locate Albert Willis. That case is yet to go to court, according to Martin.

Chief Martin says this remains an ongoing investigation.
