PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Police say they believe they found the body of a missing business owner who was assaulted and abducted in North Philadelphia back in June.
The FBI/PPD Violent Crimes Task Force recently made contact with the Cecil County Sheriff's Office in Maryland regarding unidentified human remains located in late August in Port Deposit, Maryland.
Police say items found nearby led investigators to believe that the remains may have been those of Luis Alejandro Chueder Ramon, who was abducted on June 19 from the 2000 block of North Orkney Street in Philadelphia.
While formal confirmation via DNA testing is still pending, the Violent Crimes Task Force has informed Ramon's family that, based on dental records and other evidence, it appears their loved one has been found deceased and that the manner of his death was homicide.
This investigation is active and ongoing.
The Violent Crimes Task Force is seeking some additional information from the public regarding individuals who were on Orkney Street at the time of Ramon's abduction.
Police say two black males were seen getting into the backseat of a late model blue Volkswagen Passat and leaving the area; they are believed to have ties to Philadelphia and Norristown.
