WASHINGTON — The remains of a Fairfax County teen who had been missing for two weeks were found in a park less than a mile from her home last week.
Fairfax County police said Monday that investigators have confirmed that the body recovered was Jholie Moussa, 16. She was last seen on Jan. 12 near her family’s home on Sonia Court.
Moussa was found covered in leaves and brush in a wooded area of Woodlawn Park in the Mount Vernon area of the county on Friday.
No cause of death has been released and autopsy results are pending, police said.
Police described the girl’s death as “an isolated incident” but said they continue to pursue all leads.
