    This case really freaks me out... too close to home, and doesn't look like it'll be solved anytime soon. Reminds me of the body found in a box near here years ago, right next to I-70. Don't think that one was ever solved.

    Unhappy This may sound grisly...

    but is the torso of an adult female? I'm thinking of the guy who took his daughter and son from a 4th July picnic last year and admitted he killed them-but he never told authorities where he put the bodies-and then he killed himself in jail. The daughter was a teenager-is it possible?

    Authorities continue to work to identify the remains of a woman that was found June 28, in brush at the westbound Interstate 70 rest stop in Wright City.

    Detective Michael Yarbrough with the Greater St. Louis Major Case Squad said Thursday that the Major Case Squad is now reviewing a DNA profile of the woman, which was returned from the state crime lab. In the hope of finding the identity of the woman, that profile is being compared with other DNA profiles that are on file with Missouri law enforcement.

    Authorities have also been reviewing missing person files from throughout Missouri in an effort to identify the victim.

    A family will now have an answer, hopefully. I pray she is not buried as a Jane Doe. Praying for answers for those working this case, and justice.

    However, it sounds like the torso had hardly deteriorated, so not gonna be related to that case. Very eerie. Although since it was found along an interstate, it could be someone from most any state. Definitely some sicko, who dismembered it.

    even though brooke has been missing for some time now, I wonder if the torso could be hers? maybe this is possible. but then again it could be any number of these missing people that could have been held against there will for what ever reason the perp wanted and then murdered the person just recently. I think that the le should at least send dna material to investigators that are working the brooke wilberger case. like showsinger said, it could be anyone from almost anyplace since the body was found along an interstate rest area.

    At the risk of being disgusting, the torso could have been kept in a freezer, the removed and left at the site. Then there is no telling how long she has been dead.
    Just the facts, Ma'am.

    You know, its like these monsters don't follow the news any more. Sure they can take the limbs and head off a dead body, but they can still do DNA testing to determine who the person is. Its not like it was before where they had to have dental and fingerprints!!!

    Here's the story .... it is kind of hard to follow, though...

    "Remains lead to false alarm, police say

    The St. Louis Area Major Case Squad briefly returned to duty Monday over the suspicion that human remains had been found north of Warrenton, a few miles from the Interstate 70 rest area where a woman's torso was discovered June 28.

    But investigators determined within a few hours that the remains were most likely badly decomposed bear parts that a taxidermist had discarded in the trash. Major Robert Lowery Jr., the squad's commander, described it as a false alarm.

    Major Case Squad detectives worked on the mystery for about two weeks before turning the investigation back over to the Warren County Sheriff's Department.

    Despite examining numerous missing persons reports and pursuing many leads, authorities have yet to identify the victim. An autopsy showed that she was white and at least 20 years old.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's department at 636-456-4332.

    Huh? You mean that a man disposed of animal remains that were mistaken as possibly additional body parts maybe belonging to the torso found, right?

    Killer left DNA

    NEW article......
    Police are testing DNA that was left on the torso, believing it might belong to the killer. Still no ID on the torso, which was found clad only in a black bra. Police are searching missing persons files to find a possible match. Hope they get something soon. If anyone can link today's story, that would be great.
    20 something white female...
