    BOSTON - After years of digging, authorities believe they have found the remains of a 19-year-old woman who was killed to stop her from talking to police about a gang's criminal activities.

    Forensic tests will be done to confirm the identification of the bones found Friday on a hillside near an elementary school in Peabody, which is 20 miles north of Boston. But U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan and Essex County District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett said they think the remains belong to Aislin Silva, who vanished in November 1996.

    Authorities were guided to the area near the William A. Welch Sr. Elementary School based on testimony from a witness who was there when the body was hidden, but whose memory and speech were seriously hurt by a heroin overdose, Sullivan said.
