    Investigators say a woman who went missing last summer was most likely murdered, but her remains have yet to be found.

    Latisha Frazier, 18, disappeared on August 4 and her case was assigned to a D.C. homicide detective.

    Frazier lived in the 4200 block of South Capitol Street, SE, and months went by without a trace of her.

    A break in the case came Friday when new information was obtained leading detectives to believe Frazier had been murdered, according to Metropolitan Police.

    Investigators say they've collected enough evidence to place Frazier at the 1700 block of Trenton Place SE on August 2. It was there, police said, she was murdered during a dispute.

    But the location of her remains is still a mystery.

    Police arrested 23-year-old Brian Gaither of Southeast Washington and charged him with two counts of murder.

    He is scheduled to be arraigned in court Monday.
