NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — The murder of a New Jersey woman who vanished fifteen years ago in central New York has been solved.
The key piece of evidence was a skull discovered on the Onondaga Nation.
Investigators had been unable to match the remains until the family of Mary Ann Krepps provided a DNA sample.
Krepps vanished in 1998 with her boyfriend Thomas Card.
Card died in prison in 2006 while serving time for a sex offense, CBS 2 reported.
“We would have prosecuted him for murder in the second degree. So, to the Krepps family, we have found your daughter, your mother, your sister’s killer,” Assistant District Attorney Rick Trunfio said.
Krepps’ remains had been buried in New York, but her family plans to give her a proper burial in New Jersey.
