A woman’s skeletal remains were found near Hoover Dam


According to NBC 4, A woman’s skeletal remains were found near Hoover Dam in southern Delaware County, OH Thursday afternoon.

Columbus police said they were taking over the investigation following last month’s disappearance of Julie Popovich. The Reynoldsburg woman was last seen leaving a bar near the Ohio State University campus.

“Due to the fact that we have an outstanding missing on Julie Popovich, we’re going to be the lead investigators on this to determine the remains that were found in this field,” said Sgt. Brent Mull, of Columbus police. “Right now there’s a lot of overgrowth in the area. So, depending on how long the body’s been here, we got to make sure that we don’t lose the evidence, such as the clothes.”

According to reports the skeletal remains were partially clothed. Because of the fact that Julia Popovich is an outstanding missing person in the area the natural thought process is to believe it is her. However, no matter what the case whether it is Julie or not, someone has been found.

The remains, which were partially clothed, were found just east of Red Bank Road shortly after 2 p.m., according to NBC 4′s Mike Bowersock. A crew that was cutting grass along a tree line near a soybean field found the remains and called police, Bowersock reported.

“We were mowing the roadside and … our truck driver came back up and said he found a body,” said Dave Schwenke. “It was gone. It was bones and it had no clothes on it.”

Workers said the clothes found near the bones appeared to be a skirt and bra. Police said even the clothes were decomposed.
