CHARLESTON, WV -

For the 39 days that Kareem Hunter has been missing, family and friends have clung onto every bit of hope. But on Wednesday afternoon, news broke of a body being found, 60 miles from his home.  

"I knew that the only reason Kanawha County (deputies) would be in Raleigh County would be for him," said Chasidy Wickline, the victim's longtime girlfriend. "There are no other missing people."  

For weeks, Kareem's family has planned marches and vigils in hopes of finding him alive. Chasidy has known Kareem Hunter for almost a decade. She describes her time with him as the best memories of her life.  

"My life is forever changed. I don't think I'll ever love anybody. I think I'm done," she said. "He taught me how to be generous, he taught me not to be petty or greedy, it was just the type of person he was."  

Investigators say they found remains matching Kareem's description. While his body may be found, family members say they are searching for answers to another question.  

"I don't feel at peace because he was brutally murdered…for what?" said Chasidy.  

While the investigation continues, Chasidy says she'll do her best to honor Kareem's memory.   "I'm just going to make sure his daughter is well taken care of, just like her dad would," she said.  

So far, Kelsey Legg is the only person who has been charged in Hunter's murder. But Chasidy says she hopes other parties involved will also be brought to justice.
