MUNCIE, Ind. (AP): The family of a dead Dunkirk woman hopes a recent search where her remains were found last year will provide answers about her death.
Twenty-five-year-old Brianna DiBattiste's partial remains were found in September at the Jay County Conservation Club, more than two months after she went missing. But her skull was not found, and her family thinks it could provide more information.
The family organized a new search of the club's grounds April 11, with dogs from an Indianapolis search group picking up traces that indicate her skull could be in a pond.
Jay County Coroner Jason White says the cause of DiBattiste's death could not be determined because of the condition of her remains. He says his office thinks she died of a drug overdose, but family members think she may have been killed.
