DNA tests will positively identify the remains of a man from Lake Villa, which were found in Vernon Hills Thursday night.

Police believe the remains are that of 33-year old Nicholas Steward who disappeared two weeks ago.  That’s because personal identification was found at the scene.

They also say they believe his death may have been a suicide.

Steward’s car was found Thursday at an apartment complex in Vernon Hills.  He had cuts to his wrists and upper left arm.

The DNA results may be available by Monday.
