Anchorage police think the human remains belong to the woman seen on the memory card, and the medical examiner is working to confirm the connection and the cause of death.

Smith remained in jail on Wednesday where he is being held on an outstanding warrant. Police said they will release the name of the deceased woman once her identity is confirmed and family is notified.
