Of course, it could be any one of probably hundreds if missing girls and women.
An ABC story about the discovery says
But the fact that the decomposing body was found less than a mile from a blue barrel could be significant, as Peterson's stepbrother told "Good Morning America" in March that he helped Peterson move a heavy blue barrel from the Petersons' home into their SUV shortly after Stacy Peterson disappeared.No other story mentions that detail.
My hope is that the remains can be identified, and the family of some missing person gains some relief from the pain of not knowing what has happened to their loved one.
I'll be back with the ID news when it's published.
