Investigators told the Star-News of Wilmington that recent DNA tests matched the arm and other bones that discovered last September to Allison Jackson-Foy, 34, who disappeared nearly three years ago.
Jackson-Foy's sister found the bones when she went to place flowers at the wooded site behind a closed restaurant on Carolina Beach Road where other remains from Jackson-Foy and Angela Rothen, 42, were found in April.
Authorities think the additional bones were buried but surfaced after several storms swept through the area.
Earlier this summer, police released a composite sketch and searched searched a home, car, and storage unit belonging to Timothy Craig Iannone, 47. Iannone, however, has not been named a suspect, and police have not made any arrests.
