BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) - Authorities have identified a body found in a Bloomington, Ill. field as a 57-year-old woman who's been missing since last month.
McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling said Wednesday that Jean L. Kelly of Minier was identified through dental records.
The discovery of the body had given many people hope that it was one of several missing people from Indiana.
Kelly had been missing since early September.
Her remains were found Monday afternoon in some brush near a harvested cornfield. Kimmerling says the body had been in the field for quite some time.
