The remains of a body found in a vacant structure in Vandalia has been identified as Jennifer Lynn Middleton, who was reported Missing April 26. Her remains were found in the structure May 6.
Vandalia Police Chief Chris Hammann said the remains were identified through dental records.
According to Hammann, the autopsy was performed and foul play cannot be ruled out at this time. A forensic anthropologist will conduct further examination of the remains.
"We are encouraging anyone with information to contact the Vandalia Police Department or Audrain County Sheriff's Office to pin down the last movements of Jennifer Middleton and whereabouts," said Hammann.
