ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — Skeletal remains found in northern Ohio have been identified as those of a young woman who vanished 18 years ago while acting as an informant for police in a drug case.
The Lorain County Sheriff’s Office recently confirmed that the remains found in March on Huntington Township farmland in southern Lorain County belonged to Angela Marie Hall, who was last seen in January 1998 when she was 25.
According to The Chronicle-Telegram in Elyria, Hall was a mother of four children. She had worked with Lorain city police to convict three drug dealers, who authorities say later threatened her life. No one has been arrested in her disappearance.
A property owner found the woman’s remains while checking for damage from a wreck in the area a few days before.
