Colorado Springs police say the body found last week in Colorado Springs has been identified as a missing 22-year-old man and two men have been arrested for first degree murder.

Lt. David Whitlock says 22-year-old Jason Holley of Colorado Springs was reported missing on January 7. Jason's family then hired private investigators, who worked with CSPD, for the last four months to search for Jason.

On Thursday, May 7, their investigation came to a halt when a body was found on a popular hiking trail in Cheyenne Canyon. The El Paso County Coroner's Office confirmed the body is that of Jason Holley. The coroner's office says the manner of death was homicide but they have not determined how Jason was killed.

Police have arrested and charged 18-year-old Kyle Stott and 21-year-old Derek Hernandez, both of Colorado Springs, with first degree murder.

This is the 12th homicide in 2009. There were nine homicides in the City of Colorado Springs at this time in 2008.
