GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A body found in rural Levy County has been positively identified as missing 18-year-old University of Florida student Christian Aguilar.
Gainesville Police spokesman Ben Tobias said Aguilar was positively identified via dental records.
Aguilar's family was notified of the positive identification and further testing will be done to determine the manner of Aguilar's death, Tobias said.
Aguilar was last seen in Gainesville with his friend, 18-year-old Pedro Bravo, who has been charged with first-degree murder.
Police say Bravo told them he beat Aguilar unconscious and left him in a parking lot. Both Bravo and Aguilar are from Miami.
