MORAINE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say skeletal remains found in southwestern Ohio in September have been identified as those of a woman missing since 2017.
The Ohio Attorney General’s Office says in a statement released Tuesday that DNA analysis has matched the remains found in Moraine to Michelle Burgan. The news release says the 47-year-old Middletown woman was last seen in May 2017.
Moraine is roughly 20 miles northeast of Middletown.
The release say Burgan’s remains were found after investigators developed information indicating Burgan may have been with a Moraine man around the time of her disappearance.
Authorities say Moraine police have arrested a 57-year-old man who will face multiple charges.
