ROSEBURG, Ore. – Remains found in Southern Oregon have been identified as those of Stephanie Condon, who was 14 when she vanished in 1998 while baby-sitting her cousin's twins.
Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin said at a Wednesday news conference a Glide-area resident found the remains March 13 as he walked his dog on a logging road.
Hanlin says the state crime lab made the identification through dental records.
He did not disclose a cause of death, nor did he discuss criminal charges. Authorities said early in the investigation they had a suspect.
A massive search and hundreds of clues that poured into the sheriff's office produced no trace of the girl for nearly 11 years.
