A joint U.S. -Africa Command military investigation team discovered the remains November 12 at the site where Johnson's body was recovered following the October 4 attack in the West African nation, the Pentagon said in a statement.
Johnson's body was found two days after the October 4 attack on the convoy of American and Nigerien forces by Islamic State-linked militants.
"It is hard to find the words to describe how dismaying it was to learn that some of Sgt".
Myeshia Johnson, wife of U.S. Army Sergeant La David Johnson, who was among four special forces soldiers killed in Niger, kisses his coffin at a graveside service in Hollywood, Fla. She explained that she knew every inch of him and wanted to see something that was left. As I wrote in a Washington Post opinion piece last week, 'learning definitively the cause of death and whether he died in combat or was executed by his captors is an important step in the family's healing process'.
Johnson was reportedly found almost a mile away from the central scene of the ambush in Niger that killed him and three other United States soldiers.
Johnson was part of a mentoring program Wilson started for black youth in Miami.
His death was politicized when a USA congresswoman accused Donald Trump of being insensitive during a phone call with Johnson's widow, an account she and her mother also supported while the president denied it. "La David T. Johnson", White said.
"They won't show me a finger, a hand", Myeshia Johnson said in an interview with ABC news last month.
Sgt Johnson was among four USA soldiers killed by about 50 Islamist militants. The Pentagon said earlier this month it informed the soldiers' family members that the investigation into their deaths would not be complete until at least January.
White and other top Pentagon officials have cited the ongoing combined probe into the attack by U.S. Africa Command and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in declining to answer questions.
Johnson was the subject of a frantic search by the US and Nigerien forces when he was reported missing after an intense firefight. The story was later backed up by Johnson's aunt. He later called the congresswoman "wacky" and accused her of "SECRETELY" listening to the phone call.
