Authorities Found Decaying Human Remains Inside Garment Bag and Took 45 Years to Identify the Body
Pershing County Sheriff Police discovered decaying human remains inside a garment bag in 1978 and struggled to find out who the victim was, but revealed it belonged to a woman around 40 years old with red or auburn hair and a height of 5’5.
According to reports from Daily News, they tried to solve the case immediately, but they did not find any leads that could identify the human remains they found inside the garment bag until 45 years later, when they named her Florence Charleston, an Ohio woman.
The human remains belonged to the Ohio woman who moved into her new home in Oregon, and authorities reportedly found the garment bag more than 500 miles from her house.
