BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — Massachusetts authorities say one of two bodies found in a wooded area of Brockton has been identified as that of a 20-year-old woman who lived in the city.
The dismembered remains of Ashley Mylett were discovered this week along with a set of skeletal human remains that investigators said had apparently been there for a much longer period of time.
Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz said Wednesday that the second body has not been identified, but the medical examiner has determined that it was that of a female.
The Enterprise of Brockton reported that Mylett had been missing for several weeks.
Cruz said in a statement that both deaths remain under investigation.
Police were called to the woods on Sunday and began the search. Investigators have not said who made the call.
