NEW BRITAIN, Conn. – A seventh body found at a Connecticut dumping ground believed to have been used by a serial killer has been identified as a woman who went missing in 2003.
New Britain police said Monday medical examiners identified the woman as 26-year-old Marilyn Gonzalez, of Waterbury. Police Chief James Wardwell says Gonzalez had two young daughters when she disappeared and would have been a grandmother today.
