The Kosciusko County Coroner’s Office has determined that the skeletal remains located Sunday evening are those of a missing 18-year-old from a near-by mobile home park.

Aurora Shoemaker went missing on August 16th of last year, after leaving her home for a walk. The remains were found deep in the woods off N 175 E, just north of Suburban Acres, where Shoemaker lived on the far north side.

The investigation into the cause of Aurora’s death is on-going, with autopsy results set to be released on Friday.
