Oh what has the world come to! A teenager who disappeared a year ago, has been found in a plastic bag in Florida last week. The teenager has been identified as Corbin Odell Johnson, who was a young black male. The human remains found in a plastic bag in Jacksonville, Florida have been identified as that of a teenager who went missing almost one year ago. The death is being treated as a murder, and it is being investigated, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
“The human remains located in the 6700 block of Utsey Drive on Thursday, July 11, 2019, have been identified as Corbin Odell Johnson, black male,” said the sheriff’s office in a statement.
The grisly discovery of the teenager’s dead body was made by a worker as he cleared land.
Johnson was reported missing to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office on July 13, 2018. Corbin Odell Johnson was 18 at the time.
Shannon Whitman told First Coast News her husband was across the street from their house doing some work when he found the remains.
“He went over something and shot a skull out, immediately put the tractor in park, was like ‘oh my gosh’ and then called the cops,” she said.
Her husband, Joseph Cummings, was clearing land with a brush hog at the time.
“I hit a plastic bag, so I backed up a little bit to get the plastic bag from my mower and glanced over and happened to notice there was a skull laying there,” Cummings told News4Jax. “I just shut everything down. Shut my tractor down. Walked away from it.”
“When I glanced back to where the bag was at, that’s where I saw all the ribs, the leg bones, the femur, the rest were laying 10 feet away from where my tractor was,” Cummings told First Coast News.
Local reports, including those shared to social media, show images of the ground with human bones and a skull.
Johnson’s father had earlier said that he dropped his son, that is Corbin Odell Johnson, off for a job interview before another man dropped the teen off at his mother’s home. That was the last time she saw him, according to many local reports.
