    OH - Aria Spradling, 20, Harrison Township, 29 Sept 2013

    VANDALIA -- The Montgomery County coroner has confirmed the body found at Art Van Atta Park in Vandalia is Aria Spradling.

    The Dayton Police Department told us dental records were used to determine the identity.

    It is unknown at this time how Spradling died.

    EATON — Hair and clothing samples found at the scene of an apparent attack on a woman in late September are being tested to determine whether they can be linked to a woman last seen six weeks ago.

    That incident occurred on Sept. 29, one day after Eaton police said 20-year-old Aria Marie Spradling was last seen.

    Circumstances surrounding Aria's disappearance:

    Melissa Spradling told News Center 7's Yuna Lee that she took her daughter to work at Harem Gentlemen's Club, in Harrison Twp., on Sept. 28.
    "I dropped her off and she hugged me and I hugged her and she kissed me and said 'I'll see you in a couple of days,' " the mother said.
    She said her daughter called that night, upset that someone had stolen the cash she had made dancing at the Harem that night. Melissa Spradling said her daughter told her she would have to work an extra day to make more money.
    Aria never showed for work, her mother said. A check of phone records indicates that the young woman's cell has since been turned off.

    The Eaton, Ohio, woman had been missing since late September. Authorities have said they found hair and clothing believed to be from Spradling at the scene of an apparent attack in Eaton, west of Dayton.

    Vandalia police believe Aria Marie Spradling's body had been in Art Van Atta Park for "quite some time," Lt. Dan Swafford said Wednesday. The 20-year-old was reported missing to Eaton police by her mother, Melissa Spradling, on Oct. 16.

    "She was laying next to a tree that was already knocked down...There was some foliage over the top of her, but it wasn't like she was buried," Swafford said. The remains, which were in a state of decomposition, were discovered Monday.

    The cause and manner of death has not been determined, but Ken Betz, director of the Montgomery County Coroner's Office, said right now the death is being labeled as suspicious.

    Eaton police also are looking into whether Spradling was the same woman mentioned in a Dayton police report about an incident Sept. 30 on Germantown Pike. That incident involved what witnesses told police was a possible rape situation involving a naked female and several males.

    "What I have been told was that there was a female running naked in the road and three (males) in a minivan pulled her into the van and took off with her and her clothing was apparently left on the street," DePew said.

    Dayton police were able to retrieve some clothing left behind from that incident, and that clothing was handed over to the Miami Valley Regional Crime Laboratory, according to DePew. "They are still working on trying to match that up to see if there is a connection there," he said.

    Authorities have said they found hair and clothing believed to be from Spradling at the scene of an apparent attack in Eaton, west of Dayton.
    I guess investigators still aren't sure whether the clothing found at the scene of the incident on Germantown Pike belong to Spradling, but they seem to believe it's hers. Apparently, there was also hair found at that scene believed to be Spradling's.

    If there were witnesses to that incident, didn't they get the license plate number of that van???

    The Spradling family and friends gathered in Art Van Atta Park off North Dixie Rd Saturday afternoon. They were there to remember Aria. It's the same park where the 21-year-old was found dead nearly two months after being reported missing in September of 2013.

    "She (Aria) was very outspoken, very full of life. So we're going to do this, like I said, every year just to keep it alive," said Brittany Brown, Aria’s sister... Brittany says the family just wants to find out what happened to Aria. They think someone killed her...

    The case is still open, but it’s been a while since they have heard any news. The Montgomery Co. coroner was unable to determine how she died. "They haven't really given us any details on anything. They haven't made any arrests or anything," said Brown.

    Hey all,

    Just to clarify a few things (I'm a local)... the young woman who disappeared apparently lived in a small town about 35 minutes' drive west of Dayton called Eaton. This is where I live also. It is a rural, classic "small town" community, with two other small towns and lots of country road/undeveloped area in between there and the city.

    She worked at the Harem, which is north of Dayton and at least 25-30 minutes northeast of Eaton. Germantown Pike -- where the naked woman was seen running before being pulled into a minivan -- on the other hand, is just barely southwest of downtown Dayton, not in Eaton, as ambiguous wording in some of the articles seems to indicate.

    I don't know if that clothing was ever conclusively tied to Aria or not, but it seems odd to me that she would have been running around that area, as it's not especially close to either Eaton or the Harem, and it's not really on the way between the two either. I'm inclined to think that was an unrelated incident, absent more compelling evidence.

    I didn't know Aria, but I feel a connection to the case, being as how she's from my hometown and all. I wish it had gotten more play in the media, but I never even heard that she was missing until her body was found in Vandalia. (Which is actually quite close to the Harem, another thing that makes me think the Germantown Pike incident is unrelated).

    Anyone have any more information about this? I can't find anything substantive about it online.
