Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - After ten years a cold case involving a college student who disappeared after a night out in San Diego has finally been solved.

A coroner has identified remains found in northern Los Angeles County as those of 20-year-old Lynsie Ekelund.

In 2001 Ekelund took a trip to San Diego with some friends, including a man named Christopher McAmis.

Authorities say he confessed to strangling her, and led them to her body. He's now in jail with an arraignment set for the end of this month.
