Discovery of Missing Carly Scott’s Jawbone Aided Authorities in Murder Charge Against her Former Boyfriend Steven Capobianco


As reported at KITV, the discovery of Carly Scott’s jawbone was the key turning point in the case of the missing and deceased five month pregnant woman in Maui. It also aided authorities in formulating murder charges against her former boyfriend and father of her child, Steven Capobianco. However, it was not disclosed what the connect was.  Steven Capobianco was indicted Tuesday on second degree murder charges. According to a copy of the indictment, Capobianco caused Scott’s death “in an especially heinous, atrocious, or cruel manner, manifesting exceptional depravity” in mid-February.

A person says the discovery of a missing pregnant Maui woman’s jawbone helped authorities file a murder charge against her ex-boyfriend.

The person, who was familiar with the investigation but not authorized to speak publicly, told The Associated Press Wednesday the discovery of Carly Scott’s jawbone was a key turning point in the case.

The person says when maggot-infested clothes belonging to Scott were found, it became clear she was dead.

The person declined to reveal exactly how authorities linked the jawbone to Steven Capobianco, Scott’s former boyfriend and father of her child.

Authorities identified Scott through dental records.

UPDATE I: Pregnant woman’s jawbone was found.

Jeff Simon, co-founder of Maui Search and Rescue, the volunteer organization that directed the search, said police found human remains at a site where searchers and Scott’s half-sister found a skirt, shirt and bra she identified as belonging to her sister.

“At that point, we stopped and got in touch with the Maui Police Department,” Simon said.

Searchers were led to the site because of a tracking system in Scott’s phone that pinged her last location. It was in a jungle area between two small bays along Hana Highway, a popular tourist drive along Maui’s east coast.

UPDATE II: Maui murder suspect attacked by inmate while in custody.

Cry me a river. According to the Department of Public Safety, Steven Capobianco’s neck was injured after he was assaulted by an inmate who mistook him for another inmate. Mr. Capobianco best get ready for life behind bars, he is going to be there for a long, long time.
