    Not much for details -- how she was found, or where. But they seem sure of the identity of the remains.

    It's sad that she died, but I hope the press conference can shed some light as to whether or not authorities think foul play was involved. Some of the theories surrounding her disappearance have been pretty outrageous.
    I was self employed once, but it proved too stressful. My boss was a jerk and my employee was a slacker - I didn't know whether to quit or fire myself.

    Didn't someone here on WB have a thread very recently about going to hike in Maine and looking for Inchworm? And in my mind, I was thinking, "yeah, right."

    i'm honestly wondering if that isnt who found her. they were looking in the place where someone posting here says she was found (though the news report that i can see doesnt mention it).

    Its also hunting season in Maine. Over the years hunters have found many missing remains.

    I expect the news conference will fill in some details.

    Stunning. I'm very anxious to hear the rest of this story and thank God for at least partial closure.

    And this story will likely set a new record for number of replies surpassing any previous records set by threads about guns, blaze orange or NOBO thru hike start dates.

    I can confirm that she was found on SERE property Wednesday. NCIS is investigating. This is really going to send people into orbit.

    It's a fact. Yea, this is going to be wildly interesting. Won't surprise me if the moderator has to shut this thread down.

    What was laughed off as preposterous was the theory that somehow students or staff at SERE school deliberately and maliciously cause her disappearance and subsequent death.
    The fact that NCIS is investigating is meaningless in the context of the conspiracy theory. Crimes committed aboard Naval installations or those owned by the Department of the Navy are routinely assigned to be investigated by NCIS and not local law enforcement.

    The SERE property is over 12,000 acres and borders on the AT corridor. I highly doubt there is any other correlation other than that. People need to stop thinking real life is a TV conspiracy drama.

    Wow!! I always thought she left the trail for some reason or another. Can't believe she was found, please post as many links to more information of this discovery

    Will be interesting to see how far from the trail she was found and what the cause of death is and if it can be determined why she left the trail.
