Dismembered body ID’d as woman
SWIFTWATER — A severed head and other dismembered remains found stuffed in trash bags and scattered along Pocono Mountain highways have been identified as those of a missing woman, state police said yesterday.
Deanna Maria Null, 36, was reported missing by her family after authorities circulated a description of the victim. She was identified using dental records.
No arrests have been made.
The remains were found scattered along Interstates 380 and 80 in northeastern Pennsylvania, state police said. The first bag was found Jan. 29 by a worker salting roads.
Miss Null’s family called state police on Thursday to report her missing.
“They had seen media coverage on it and knew they had not talked to her in a few weeks. It wasn’t uncommon for her to be missing,” state police Lt. Robert Bartal said.
Miss Null lived in the Scranton and Williamsport areas but was “relatively transient,” he said. The last time she was seen alive was in mid-January.
