The search for missing woman Brianna DiBattiste may be over after remains were discovered on Monday. This Tuesday news report reveals that the remains were located approximately 50 miles south of Fort Wayne on the Conservation Club grounds, and authorities believe that the identification will positively match the missing Dunkirk, Indiana woman. DNA tests will be completed to confirm whether or not the remains belong to her, but officials appear to be positive.
The discovery was made by authorities, apparently while searching for the missing woman, which indicates the discovery may have been found on direction and not simply by chance. Previous reports indicate that a man confessed to being involved in her death and disposed of her body. However, officials in Indiana have long declared their belief that Curtis Neal was leading them on a wild goose chase. Multiple failed searches took place based off Neal's statements.
Brianna DiBattiste vanished back in mid-June, and was last seen by her mother. Over the course of the past couple of months multiple investigative agencies have been involved in the search for her. Social media has also played a large role in the keeping awareness high about this disappearance -- as well as the numerous cases of missing women in the state of Indiana. Now at least one family in the state is closer to closure -- but they will forever be scarred with the knowledge that their loved one is dead. What needs to be asked now is how she died, and if she was a victim of foul play: Is her death at all related to the disappearances of other women in the area?
