Human remains found last month in a wooded area of Arlington have been identified.

Using dental records, the Tarrant County Medical Examiner identified a skeleton found in a wooded area as Ellen King.

King, who was 55 and a diabetic, was reported missing July 7, 2010, after she was last seen leaving her home at 8:30 a.m. the previous morning. Her roommate said that she left home without her medicine, purse or money while she went on a walk.

King lived on Durham Drive, near Vandergriff Park, just two blocks north from where her body was recovered on last month.

On Feb. 25, three men approached an Arlington police officer and told him they had discovered human remains in a wooded area along the 200 block of W. Arbrook Boulevard. The officer investigated and found the decomposed remains about 200 feet from the roadway.

As a cause of death has not yet been revealed, investigators said King's death is an open investigation.
