KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) – Killeen homicide investigators and the Team Texas K9 Unit discovered more bone fragments Tuesday in a secondary search of the area where the remains of a missing Fort Hood soldier were found a year ago, police said Wednesday.

The fragments were sent to a forensic lab for testing, police spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez said.

Fort Hood Pvt. 2nd Class Gregory Wedel-Morales disappeared on Aug. 19, 2019.

He was initially declared AWOL but was posthumously reinstated after his remains were found on June 19, 2020 in a search of a wooded field in the 3200 block of Florence Road.
