    Remains are female

    The report I heard this morning is that the remains are female. I haven't heard any other details.

    Tracy Marie Kroh is from that area, but if the UID was wrapped in carpet or a blanket, it's probably not her because linens would probably not last that long.

    I was going to post that Tracy Kroh was the first person I thought of when I read the title but I think she would've been found much sooner at this location and there would be very little evidence left of being wrapped in something (it's been 21 years). Unless, its a heavy duty piece of carpet, that may have survived the elements.

    I wonder how long the remains have been there ? It's been speculated that Doug Stewart dumped his ex-wifes Venus remains somewhere along his route back east

    I don't have time to search for his route at the moment, but will link this in her thread as well.

    The Venus Stewart question:

    I checked mapquest regarding if this was on Doug Stewarts route home from Colon, MI.

    Seems Colon to Newport News, VA is 12 hours 30 minutes. If he went through Newport, PA it would have taken him about 14 hours and 11 minutes. Not sure if he had time to do that. But, I wouldn't rule it out.

    Here's a very short article confirming what Carolyn H. said about the remains being female:

    From what I'm reading, even after the autopsy, they can't determine age, race, time or manner of death, etc. That certainly doesn't bode well for ever being able to identify this person.

    Police said the remains were found about 25 yards from where tractor-trailers regularly park along the westbound lanes of the highway.
    This would suggest that (1) the victim is probably not local., and (2) she may have been a hitchhiker who was catching rides with truckers.

    A little more information

    The property where the body was found -- approximately 2.5 miles east of the Newport exit on westbound Route 322 -- changed owners two months ago, and a man was surveying it for a relative and found the body around 3 p.m. Thursday, Shalonis said.

    District Attorney Charles Chenot said the body was wrapped in something, possibly a carpet or blanket.

    The man who found the body didn't immediately know what it was and started unwrapping it, and then called authorities when he realized what he found, Shalonis said.

    Though Howe Twp. has only about 500 residents, the area is heavily traveled because of Route 322 and its access to Interstate 81 in Dauphin County.

    Could it be Toni Lee Sharpless?

    I guess we have to wait for more info.

    I think she is relatively close to his/her parents house because he wouldn't have a body in the truck for 12 hours. He would have gotten rid of evidence within a couple of hours.

    I still think she is probably in Ohio...which is still less than two hours. Somewhere around the Walmart...dig the grave when you buy the murder kit...save yourself time on the way back after the murder.

    Just my opinion though.

    Autopsy fails to ID remains found in Perry County

    HOWE TOWNSHIP -- An autopsy Monday morning at Lehigh Valley Hospital failed to identify skeletal remains found last week in a heavily wooded area off U.S. Routes 22/322.

    The remains, found Thursday wrapped in a blanket or carpet, were those of a female of undetermined race and age, the autopsy found. The cause and manner of death, as well as the time frame, were not determined.

    Police said the remains were found about 25 yards from where tractor-trailers regularly park along the westbound lanes of the highway. A man surveying property found the body.
