The remains of a missing woman were found buried near the Tuolumne River adjacent to John Thurman Field in southwest Modesto, police said Thursday.
Investigators from the Reno Police Department called Sunday offering information about a possible homicide that had occurred two years go in Modesto, Sgt. Brian Findlen said in a news release.
Reno police found the information when they spoke with two people involved in a domestic dispute within their jurisdiction.
Detectives began combing the banks of the Tuolumne River in the area described by a witness. Cadaver dogs were used in the extensive search, but it was a backhoe that ultimately revealed the remains, Findlen added.
