An excavation crew working on the site of a new subdivision unearthed the remains on Wednesday.

Christina Morris, 23, had been missing since Aug. 30 2014.

Surveillance video showed her and her longtime friend Enrique Arochi walking into a parking garage at an upscale shopping and restaurant complex in Plano after a night of drinking with friends.

Morris was reported missing three days later.

Her vehicle was found in the parking garage.

Arochi, 26, was arrested about three months later.

In September 2016, a judge in McKinney sentenced Enrique him to life in prison after a jury convicted him of aggravated kidnapping in Morris’ disappearance.

Her parents later reported their daughter missing.

Investigators say DNA from Morris was found in Arochi's vehicle during the search for the missing woman and during the trial a police officer testified that Arochi’s cellphone pinged a cellular tower in Anna the day after Morris was last seen.
