    OH - Wendy, 31, & Peyton Ralston, 5, Tallmadge, 23 July 2013

    The rest at Daily Mail, with pictures:

    Badly decomposed bodies of woman and child found in Ohio, may be mother and son reported missing last week
    Officials are working to identify the remains of two people found Saturday in Ohio.
    ---
    The remains found were only feet from where Wendy Ralston and her five-year-old son lived; the two have been missing since last week
    ---
    ‘The bodies are badly decomposed,’ spokesperson Gary Guenther told MailOnline, adding that an anthropologist is being brought in to bolster the office’s efforts to identify the remains after they spent ‘longer than a week’ in the woods.

    Tallmadge Police have no leads yet on the disappearance of Ralston and her son, but have questioned many people, including the boy’s father.

    A witness who lives near the home of a missing Tallmadge woman said she heard her neighbor’s child cry out “Mommy, get up” several times one day last month.

    The remains were found wrapped in a bed comforter and dark blue sheet and placed in a wooded area behind Ralston’s home on Stone Creek Drive, a subdivision off Eastwood Drive in Tallmadge.

    A man who neighbors said lived with Ralston was seen talking to police Saturday and then leaving with two plain clothed officers.

    TALLMADGE, Ohio -

    "The two bodies found in a wooded area in Tallmadge on Saturday were wrapped in blankets.

    A Summit County Medical Examiner’s report said the remains were wrapped in a comforter and a dark blue sheet, then stuffed in a duffel bag. The cause of death and the identities of the victims have not been released.
    However, Tallmadge police said 31-year-old Wendy Ralston and her 5-year-old son were reported missing on Aug. 7. But a day care worker said Ralston stopped bringing her son in mid-July.

    “We just assumed maybe she lost her job,” Beth Mauller said as she left a small teddy bear for the boy at the Ralston’s home. “He was just one of those little kids that took your heart and you couldn’t help but fall in love with him.”

    The bodies were discovered in the 500 block of Stone Creek Drive on Saturday afternoon. Police said Marie Ralston reported the discovery directly to the police department so there is no 911 call.
    Police and agents from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation searched Ralston’s nearby duplex for hours on Monday.

    A 12-year-old boy in the neighborhood said he and a friend were walking in the wooded area on Friday and noticed something strange." (cont at link)

    According to the article there will be a presser today at 11am (CST I guess).

    No news on the 'man' who lived with them.

    (Sounds like her Mom found her wrapped up behind the house in the woods. )

    Search warrant obtained on house. Constant 24/7 security on the house. Numerous searches of house, vehicle and woods behind house.

    Wendy and Payton have both been identified...

    39 yo boyfriend of Wendy living in house, he is the father of Payton. We've talked to him, talked to many people...

    Going to analyze massive amount of evidence over the next few days...

    No CoD, no ToD

    Yet to identify a suspect, that's what we're working on today...

    The amount of evidence is substantial. We've got evidence in the house, evidence in the field...

    Confirmed this is a double homicide investigation.

    Last confirmed sighting probably in late July.

    Spokesman just confirmed there have been a number of contacts to LE for domestic issues at that home.

    The boyfriend is described as 'cooperative'.

    LE is trying very hard not to confirm whether boyfriend is a POI. (Reporters keep trying to ask in different ways, is what I mean.)

    "We're very confident we're going to handle this successfully."

    (Boyfriend's been living in the house the whole time. I think this one will probably be pretty predictable. Won't say more for TOS.)

    So boyfriend lives with them, but didn't report them missing - her mother had to do that. Huh. Interesting.

    RIP Wendy and Peyton.

    After seeing fran's post after mine, I just wanted to add that I feel so bad for Wendy's daughter as well.

    Per news brief:

    Second body was id'd as Peyton's. (she was previously id'd).

    Her mom had lost contact with Wendy since July 23rd. It was not unusual for them not to have contact for a period of time.

    Early August her mom began trying to contact Wendy. On August 10 she began looking for Wendy and found bodies behind home in woods.

    39 year old b/f, father of child(?)(he wasn't exactly clear on that) was questioned. He lived in the home.

    No cause of death. Massive amount of evidence, including in house. Have questioned many people, no suspect at this time. Many POI's they're talking to.

    Both vehicles on property towed away for processing.

    LE confident they will be successful in solving this.

    Wendy has 13 yo daughter that is with grandmother.

    the end.

    They'll probably have video up shortly.
