    IL - Rochester, WhtFem skeletal, 30-40, in shed, Jul'14 - Tracy Trimby

    http://www.sj-r.com/article/20140723/NEWS/140729739

    Illinois State Police on Wednesday said the skeletal remains found in Rochester are those of a 30- to 40-year-old white woman...

    The remains, which have not been identified, were found Saturday in a shed in the back yard of a property at 309 Park St. by a resident who was cleaning. The remains had been in the shed for an extended period of time, Sangamon County Coroner Cinda Edwards said. The death is “likely consistent with a homicide,” Edwards added...

    Several items were collected as evidence and will be processed by the Illinois State Police forensic laboratory. It could take several weeks to get the results.
    I wonder if this could be Michelle Bianco, who disappeared in 2008:

    Her last known location was about eight miles away.

    ETA: Oops, I see on Michelle's thread that other sleuthers are thinking the same way.

    The skeletal remains found in Rochester last week are not those of a 43-year-old former Springfield woman who has been missing for the past six years, the Sangamon County coroner’s office said Thursday...

    Coroner Cinda Edwards said Thursday that her office was able to rule out Bianco through an examination of dental records.

    Keri Gillenwater looks like a good possible. She's a missing person and possible fugitive who went missing with her husband. One month after they both disappeared, her husband told one of their daughters that he didn't know where she was. He hasn't been seen since.

    1. She's a white female whose age is within range, so the little information we have about the UP lines up with Gillenwater.
    2. She went missing only 70 miles away from Rochester.
    3. The circumstances definitely seem to line up. There's no indication of foul play in her case (yet), but you'd think she'd have tried to contact one of her four daughters by now. There's also a history of domestic violence between her and her husband.

    ETA:

    There's also Benedetta Bentley, missing since May 2010.
    Her age is just one year out of range, she went missing about 98 miles away, and the circumstances suggest she was murdered.

    This sounds like they don't know about Namus/Codis:

    Campbell said the fact that Norman McCaster was a member of the Illinois National Guard was crucial to determining his identity. The military keeps a database of DNA the sheriff’s office used to get a match.
    Authorities can also try to match someone’s genetic information in a database of convicted criminals, he added.
    But even if authorities don’t get a match on the DNA, they can continue to review missing-person cases and monitor new reports. State police reached out to the sheriff’s office about the Bianco case, Campbell said.

    Stacy Peterson?
    Unless I've provided a link, most of what I say is my own opinion. Sometimes, I'm thinking out loud and may explore avenues I don't necessarily think are true, but I'm always aware I could be wrong, so I check other stuff out.

    Possible, I suppose. It's about a three hour drive, according to Googlemaps, but direct. https://goo.gl/maps/Y8MoL

    She would also be a bit younger than their 30-40 year old initial estimate.

    The human remains found in a Rochester shed on July 19 have been identified as those of a 43-year-old white woman from Decatur.

    Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Eric Hall said the identity was confirmed using dental records and forensic evidence. An autopsy on the remains was conducted by the Sangamon County coroner's office. He said the woman was never on any missing persons lists.

    Investigators said the woman's family has been notified but are not releasing her name because the investigation is ongoing.

    The skeletal remains of a woman found in a shed in Rochester earlier this summer have been identified as those of Tracy Trimby, 43, of Decatur.

    According to Sangamon County Coroner Cinda Edwards, a specially trained forensic dentist made the identification. DNA evidence analyzed at the Illinois State Police Crime Lab verified the remains as Trimby’s.

    Police say Trimby's name was not on any lists of missing people. Authorities believe her death was a homicide because items in the shed were stacked on her.

    Edwards says the body was there for a long time, but she's said she's not sure how long, nor is she sure how she died.

    Man charged over body found in Illinois shed

    http://www.wandtv.com/story/26578414...-illinois-shed
    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    Docket detail for case 2014-CF-001032: http://records.sangamoncountycircuit...splayDocket.sc


    for those who may wish to follow the case via the Circuit Clerk website. The above is the case number assigned. That or the perp's name can be entered to reach the docket summary for case activity. This POI's previous record in sangamon county is basically traffic cases.

    With the exception of this case:

    2013-DT-001088 PERKINS BRADLEY D 1974 (birth year)

    Which for some reason cannot be viewed, possibly a divorce or family law matter hence not public record? Not sure.
