Authorities believe they have found the remains of a Mesa woman who went missing 5 years ago.
The discovery came last week when a group of men target shooting in the nearby desert stumbled upon a large container holding human remains. AZfamily.com reported that the three men found the plastic container concealed in a bush.
According to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, deputies examined the remains and identified them as Jenika Brianne Feuerstein, who went missing from her Mesa home on Jan. 3, 2009, at the age of 20.
Feuerstein’s death is being investigated as a homicide, and that investigation is ongoing.
