LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Lubbock police say the body found along a remote road north of the city is that of a teenager missing since January.
Police Capt. Greg Stevens says a Tuesday autopsy positively identified the body found a day earlier as that of 15 year-old Elizabeth Ennen.
Humberto Maldonado Salinas Jr. is jailed on an aggravated kidnapping charge in Ennen's disappearance. Jail records show the 45-year-old doesn't have an attorney.
Lubbock County District Attorney Matt Powell says there's no rush to add a charge pertaining to Ennen's death since Salinas is already jailed.
Ennen disappeared after baby-sitting for Salinas' children at a motel the evening of Jan. 4. Her mother reported her missing about 1 a.m. Jan. 5.
Ennen's body was found in a field near Shallowater, about 10 miles northwest of Lubbock.
