FAYETTEVILLE — A body found Wednesday in a wooded area near Fayetteville State University has now been positively identified as a missing 70-year-old man.

James Boykin walked away from the Elderlodge Rest Home in February.

Fayetteville Police were able to make a positive identification through dental records. Police say they do not suspect foul play.
