We have been in contact with KSP who’s on the scene. Remains were found on a farm and the woman seems to have been deceased for 3-5 yrs. The remains haven’t been to the coroner yet to get exact details. The detective working Andrea’s case was made aware too. We will check back with them when they have more info. Dental records of Andrea’s are similar to these remains.
