A body buried in the backyard of a neighbor's home in southeast Fresno is that of missing 15-year-old Steven Humphrey, Fresno County Coroner David Hadden said Tuesday.

The body was identified through DNA from the homicide victim's teeth, Hadden said. The cause of death is not yet known, he said.

Humphrey disappeared more than four years ago. His body was discovered April 16 after police received a tip that he was buried at 235 S. Dearing Ave., about a block from where he lived.
