The Hennepin County medical examiner's office confirmed on Tuesday that a body found in a ditch a day earlier was that of 20-year-old Anarae Schunk.

Schunk was last seen on Sept. 22 with her ex-boyfriend at a bar in Burnsville, a city about 20 miles south of Minneapolis.

The ex-boyfriend, Anthony Lee Nelson, is charged with fatally shooting a man outside the bar the bar the same night.

Schunk's brother says police had asked the family for dental records after the body was found.
