Human Remains Found In Quarry May Be Those Of Woman Missing Since March
MONROE TWP. (WWJ/AP) – Police say human remains found in a southeastern Michigan quarry could be those of a 27-year-old woman missing since March.
Michigan State Police Lt. Tony Cuevas said the skeletal remains found Wednesday in Monroe Township could be Jamie Rachelle West, but positive identification could take a week.
“There are indications it’s going to be her,” Cuevas told the Monroe News.
The remains were found at least 35 feet from the top of Stoneco quarry — on South Telegraph Road between Dunbar and Albain roads — in an area where there’s no water, police said.
Dental records are expected to confirm the identity, but clothing found at the scene is reportedly similar to what West was wearing at the time of her disappearance.
West was last seen by family members on March 15 after she removed her ankle tether — which she was ordered to wear for a possession of heroin charge — and seemingly disappeared.
