This is an update to a story originally published in August.

Over the last several weeks the Anne Arundel County Homicide Unit has been working on getting the recovered remains from Quiet Waters Park positively identified. In expediting Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) testing the remains were identified as Jose Hernandez-Portillo, a twenty-two year old male from the Annapolis area. The Anne Arundel County Police had been investigating his disappearance since March 11, 2016 when he was initially reported missing.

HOMICIDE VICTIM

Since the discovery of the remains homicide detectives have been working with the OCME and States Attorney’s Office in regards to the trauma received by Mr. Hernandez-Portillo and the ruling of homicide. Evidence leads homicide detectives to believe that he was murdered around the time of his disappearance. Homicide detectives are confident that this was a targeted crime and not a random act of violence.
