JASPER, Ala. – A 11-year mystery in Walker County may be solved after the remains of two bodies were found in West Virginia. There’s also been an arrest.
The bodies are believed to be those of two elderly women missing from Walker County since 2002, WIAT reports.
Walker County District Attorney Bill Adair says a woman named Wanda Kiser is in custody in West Virginia. Kiser faces charges in connection to the women’s disappearance, WIAT reports. She was arrested Tuesday.
The two women, 104-year-old Mary Cobb and her 83-year-old daughter, Wynona Delvecchio, vanished while Kiser was supposed to be taking care of them in 2002, Adair said.
Kiser has already been indicted on 17 counts of forgery in Alabama. She is suspected of forging documents in both women’s names to collect their benefits.
Walker County officials are holding a news conference today to release more information in the case.
