IN - Candi Brown, 29, Michigan City, 26 August 2012
I couldn't find a thread for Candi, so am adding this one for her.
Human remains found last month in a wooded area of northern Indiana have been identified as those of a woman who vanished last summer.
Michigan City police used DNA to determine that the bones were those of 29-year-old Candi Brown, who was last seen in August 2012.
Police are still investigating what happened to Brown and how the Michigan City woman's remains ended up in a wooded area just outside that city. Her remains were found in early May.
After Brown's disappearance, her car was found abandoned outside a Michigan City bar and grill.
“Devastation, like never in a million years did you think this would happen to you,” said James Edwards, Brown’s cousin.
The last anyone saw of the 29-year-old Brown was in late August of last year.
“They pulled in dog teams from different states and they pulled in a helicopter from a different county, troopers on horseback, they went all out looking for Candi,” said Christine Salzer, a volunteer who helped look for Brown.
Months went by, and then in May someone found human remains near County Line Road and Chandler Road, a wooded area just outside Michigan City.
“Why? What did she do in life that was so bad that she deserved to be discarded like an animal?” said Edwards.
The Michigan City Police Department is still investigating what happened to Brown, and how she ended up in the woods.
“At this point we really don't know,” said Salzer.
