Body found in Pender County has been positively identified as Mariah Woods, per the Onslow County Sheriff's Office.

The toddler's body, which was found in a muddy creek about 25 miles away from her home in Jacksonville, was positively identified on Wednesday more than a week after her mother Kirsty Woods first reported her missing on November 27.

Kimrey was charged with concealing of death, obstruction of justice, second-degree burglary, felony larceny and possession of stolen property. He has not been charged with the toddler's murder.
