BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) - Jackson County sheriff’s officials say the woman found dismembered and buried in two shallow graves 25 years ago has been identified.

Sheriff Duane Waldera said Monday the victim is 36-year-old Julia Baez, of Milwaukee. She was killed in Black River Falls in 1990.

WXOW-TV (https://bit.ly/1U2hDdv ) reports investigators exhumed the remains last year and with the help of new technology at the University of North Texas Health Science Center were able to learn the victim’s identity.

The center used a portion of exhumed bone to create a DNA profile of the victim since no DNA samples were taken in 1990. The profile was entered into a national database for missing and unidentified people.
