The bones discovered in a secluded area about three miles south of South Bend in 1996 bore striking similarities to Huisentruit, investigators said Friday.
“The dental records of the unidentified person in Indiana have been examined and compared to those of Ms. Huisentruit by a forensic odontologist, and he has determined they are not those of Ms. Huisentruit,” said Mason City police Lt. Ron Vande Weerd.
The connection between the remains and Huisentruit surfaced in an e-mail to The Des Moines Register Friday from a Delaware man who said he learned of the body on the Internet and saw similarities between the two cases.
