VILAS COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in far northern Wisconsin are still trying to determine how a 55-year-old woman died, after her remains were found in the woods last week.
Sandra Schinke of Sayner was reported missing 17 months ago in the Northern Highland State Forest.
Vilas County Sheriff Joe Fath said dental records helped identify Schinke. He says investigators are still waiting for test results from the State Crime Lab which could clarify how Schinke died.
A hunter spotted a jacket and a shoe last Monday -- and that led to the discovery of Schinke's remains last Thursday
