MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Just two days after Memphis police found Calvin Holloway's body, there are still many questions surrounding his death.

While it is unclear if his death is linked to the human remains found in his back yard months ago, friends said they think it is.

"They need to come out and say something. It's not fair to loved ones and family. Right now we're just putting it in God's hands," friend Mandy Shipman said.

Calvin Holloway's death is a homicide investigation that has now brought together two agencies in two different states and could be linked to another death investigation from five years ago.

Twenty-five-year-old Calvin Holloway's body was found in Memphis just days ago after he went missing on Saturday morning.

Friends said he left to help a friend who was stranded at 3:45 in the morning and never returned. His truck was found abandoned five miles from where police found his body.

"That's cruel. That's just messed up," Shipman said.

But now the question remains: is Holloway's death linked to the human remains found in his backyard months ago?

WMC Action News 5 spoke to Holloway back in January when he took WMC's Rose Eiklor through his yard and showed her where police dug up human remains that they said were there for around five years.

Holloway said the remains were linked to current inmate Josef Schnabl, who had been a former roommate. He spoke to Schnbal through our cameras.

"You screwed up enough in this lifetime man and you're taking a few people, including myself, down with you," Holloway told our cameras.

"We all just want answers. We're all really overwhelmed," Shipman said.

Holloway's friends want answers about his death and who was buried in the backyard. These are the questions friends said haunted Holloway unti; the day he died.

"He told me his home was never the same since the body was found," Shipman said.
