The Oregon medical examiner has identified the remains found in a remote area outside Portland last week as those of a missing 14-year-old girl.

The Portland Police Bureau says the remains are those of Yashanee Vaughn, who has been missing since March.

Portland police say Vaughn was killed by a gunshot wound to the head. The medical examiner's office made the identification through a DNA test.

The district attorney's office has said the discovery resulted from information provided by 16-year-old Parrish Bennette Jr.

Bennette has been charged with murder in the girl's death and is being held without bail pending trial. Police believe the killing occurred March 19.
