Indiana police say woman's remains being examined

FAIRFIELD, Ohio (AP) — Indiana State Police say the remains of a 21-year-old southwest Ohio woman who went missing in 2011 have been taken to Indianapolis for more examination and testing.

They say in a release issued Tuesday that it could take up to six weeks for necessary examinations and testing of Katelyn (KAYT'-lin) Markham's remains to be completed. Police say a forensic anthropologist is examining the remains in Indianapolis.

Indiana police and Fairfield, Ohio, police have a joint investigation in the case. Markham was reported missing Aug. 14, 2011, from her home in suburban Cincinnati just days before her 22nd birthday.

Her remains were found April 7 in a southeast Indiana creek area sometimes used for dumping. They were identified with dental records.
