South Bend Police confirmed the body found in a burned out warehouse last week is that of a missing homeless man.
They say 50-year-old Richard Eakins was found on Friday in the building near the corner of Walnut and Western.
That building caught fire on Tuesday and police soon began looking for Eakins.
He was homeless and had permission to be inside the building.
Searchers spent several days looking through the rubble before finding a body on Friday.
