WORCESTER -- Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. has confirmed the body found Friday morning off of Route 190 in Sterling is missing Fitchburg 5-year-old Jeremiah Oliver.

"The autopsy report is not complete," Early spokesman Tim Connolly wrote in an email just after 4 p.m. Saturday. "No other information about the case will be released at this time. The investigation continues."

The finding of Jeremiah's body around 9 a.m. Friday in a wooded area just 40 feet off of Route 190 South in Sterling marks the end of a monthslong search for the missing 5-year-old, last seen by family in September.

Jeremiah's mother, Elsa Oliver, her boyfriend, Alberto Sierra, and three others have been charged in the case.
