DNA tests have indentified the body found along a road in Thornton, Ill. as that of Dana Hayes.The 35-year-old Park Forest woman had been missing since January 25.

The body was found earlier in the week in Thornton, but authorities had to wait for DNA tests to come back to get a positive identification.

Hayes' family says police have told them the DNA was a match.

The medical examiner's office ruled the woman's death a homicide and police say they are looking for her killer.
