Missing woman identified
DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - Human remains found almost two years ago in
northeast Georgia have been identified through DNA testing as those
of a metro Atlanta woman reported missing in October 2005.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says skeletal remains of
40-year-old Leslie Adams of Lilburn were found in a swampy area by
local residents two miles west of Interstate 85 in Franklin County
on May 13, 2007.
The GBI says bone fragments were submitted to the FBI for DNA
extraction and compared to three of Adams' family members. After
the FBI lab determined DNA from the fragments was consistent with
family profiles, the results were forwarded to the University of
North Texas for an analysis that determined the probability that
the recovered remains were those of Leslie Adams is greater than
1.12 billion to one.
