A teen missing since 2008, whose remains were found in a trash bag by a landscaper in April, was identified today.
The Parsippany Police Dept. was called to Sylvan Way, just past Entin Road in Morris County on April 12. A landscaper clearing debris from the road found a trash bag with what was thought to be skeletal human remains inside, reports the Star Ledger.
The remains were identified through dental records as belonging to Greta Tim, who lived on Breckenridge Terrace in Irvington, New Jersey. She was 14-years-old when she went missing on July 27, 2008.
Authorities do not know how the remains ended up in Parsippany, which is about 20 miles from Irvington, but they do believe that Greta was killed in one location and her remains moved to the commercial parcel off Sylvan Way.
Law enforcement stated that the remains had been there for a "very significant time period," but did not say if it had been as long as since 2008, reports the Daily Record.
"We have significant leads in the investigation that we're pursuing," Morris County Prosecutor Robert A. Bianchi said.
Although the Medical Examiner did not state how Greta was killed they have no doubt her death was a homicide, reports the Daily Record.
